We have a foster dog that use to have trouble with cats. As you can see he has gotten over that with DC. He has no problem jumping up on the couch and sitting or laying on DC and DC won't give up his place! They are my Siamese non-identical twins! LOL
First off hardly anyone recognized me because I had a ton of hair – except one Nurse who charged up to me and asked where my ears were (my faerie ears). The NP, Lisa, whom I saw today got a real kick out of my side effect because in all her years she has never heard of that side effect, leave it to me to be different! During our talking I mentioned my knees and how the PCP will prolly wanna do an MRI and she said why don’t you wait until you are completely off the Arimidex because they sound like a side effect of being on Arimidex – like you have arthritis in your joints especially the knees. How about that, I got something right! LOL So I have to be off of Arimidex for 3 weeks before I start the new drug – it starts with an A – hopefully it isn’t Aphrodesiac because I ain’t in the mood! Bwwwwwwaaaaahhhhhhhhh! Ha ha aha hahahahahaha
I was reading "Draw and Paint The Realm of Faerie" by Ed Org and he said that he often is inspired by hair and head pieces, and costumes. I have a few nice hairsticks, barrettes, and a head piece or two that I have made. I also have some old jewelry that I have picked up at thrift stores, yard sales, and occasionally as a gift. I do like to go through Ebay, Etsy, and any other shops I can find to see if I can get inspired by what they place before my eyes. He also uses models for photos, having them wear the costumes and props.
I often buy magazines searching for body positions, hand positions, hair style, clothes, jewelry, etc that inspire my muse. I would love to find people to model some for me but I can't pay. I did buy some books with nude models which I find hard to use because I am a bit of a prude, in some cases an extreme prude. I would prefer to have them in nude colored body suits.... some of the models (male and female) really should think 15 times before posing nude for a book! Ewwwww... sorry peeps.
I find sometimes reading stories, poems, and prayers to be inspiring, also biographies, and autobiographies. Sometimes people watching, too, though I am not a quick sketcher so if I see someone doing something I can't get it down quick enough. On occasion I have asked a person if I can take a picture of them but it is usually at Faeriecon and usually they don't care. I am thinking I need to buy some more nice pieces of clothes for costumes like I wore when I went through chemo and when I went to Faeriecon.
Wow, that prednesone did a number on making me look round! Well, the ears thin my face out a bit, doncha think? Hmmmm, maybe not! LOL
I just finished the fourth picture in the series called Angel Hugs. I apologize for the pictures that I took for most because I was not at home while working on this picture. I'll be hooking up my scanner soon!
This picture is in honor of Carolyn who passed on due to complications from Brain Cancer and her sister Vivien who helped her sister through it all, is writing a poetry book about her sister, and who just had a hysterectomy due to Uterine cancer. Both are very strong, brave, and courageous women.
Being as I am a new person (again – always growing and changing) I decided to do something different this year for New Years. Normally I am in bed asleep when the ball drops but I decided to stay up, though I didn’t watch the Ball drop, I was reading an Amish love story. :) I enjoyed the fireworks and gunshots from red necks from my bed safe and sound and warm!
Things I learned:
~ Champaigne is pretty to watch,looks like shooting stars, but what I had bought tasted awful! Unless there is a type of Champaigne out there that actually tastes good I on’t be drinking it! It would be a good way to cure anyone of alcoholism if they ever became one! UGH
~ Don’t have a party in which a bunch of drunk people start a fire in the garage! This happened down the block from our house, I’d like to meet more of my neighbors but this isn’t how I would like to meet them! LOL
