97th post...and New Art

"If Only We Could Fly"

"She Always Picked the Best"

Two new pieces of art that will be added to the site today...little bits of whimsy for sale in my studio at JacksonSquare Studio. This month, all my large paintings have been DRASTICALLY reduced....really reduced, not just a little bit. The September 20% Sale is now over and the October sale is even better!! If there's something you've your eye on...check it out...

I just noticed that this my 97th post. So, I should probably do something special for my 100th post. Like a giveaway or something. What do you think? I think that today, I will start looking around my studio for a little basket to put together and see if can I pull together some things....I'm thinkin a 100th post parth. I don't think it's kind of thing you just let pass, right? Well, I've got two more posts to go to plan it!

So healing is going well....walking daily. Walked almost the entire block yesterday. Still in a lot of pain during the day and night and resisting the urge to take painkillers all day...trying to use ice and movement and rest..Sleeping (or should I see attempting to sleep) is still very difficult! My leg becomes very painful at night..I'm looking forward to physical therapy and some tips they may be able to give me with that. I have NOT enjoyed not being able to ride in a car for thisperiod of time! I have strict instructions to stay out of a car - as a driver and as a passenger for two weeks! NO FUN! I am getting a little stir crazy and would like to go for a ride at least to the pharmacy or to the art supply store to replace the bottle of matte medium I such luck!!

Before I go, I want to get serious and ask that anyone that reads my blog to please stop and take a minute to think of my sister who is having surgery today. She is 43 years old and has just been diagnosed with breast cancer. She has two teenage daughters, a wonderful husband and a wonderful life and out of nowhere, found a lump under her arm. Anyway, breast cancer can strike anyone, any age group, any family! This surgery is the first step in her treatment. I know that she will be ok with good medicine, healing thoughts, and prayer. Please include her in yours, if you will.
Have a great day, be good to yourself.
Have a great day! I'll be planning my 100th post party and will talk to you soon
