I did not paint... which is blowing my mind. 3 little sketches, the one I did finish- I learned what 'rain does to Gouache' my meditation frog (below) was washed away.. so was I.
Up with he birds- and the birds were AMAZING! I was in bird utopia!
Arrrrgh! I forgot to bring some peanuts.
From bed to the dock was my first stop each morning as the girls - Daisy & Poppy would need to pee. *thanks to Storm for leaving his dog with me. & I would sit and sip my tea.
I'd wander between the cottage and dock, in at 11 to nap... deck, dock, bed nap.. lol!
Really. I needed it bad. Holy cow.
I was instantly overtaken with the peace and exhaustion- physically & mentally, took hold and said SLEEP. Thankfully, where ever I went, Daisy lay 3 feet away, ever watching me & Poppy. I LOVE my dogs. I love all dogs. I was so relaxed I slept with all the windows and doors open on the hottest few days and absorbed the quiet. Satellite Tv- I turned on and thought REALLY!? REALLY Georgia!? It was in time for the line from Ghost Busters (* which I will watch @ my desk painting) "Do you have any Hobbies?" - "I collect moulds, fungus and spores." It cracked me up, lol - that is Storm. He is anxious for the fall foray season. ;) I could NOT stay awake the first couple of days and hardly ate.
My body was screaming and my mind called the shots. SLEEP
I even started to feel guilty- you're not painting... oh well, sit back & breath.
I thought about a few people in specific on my mind lately all the time.
I didn't shed a teaar- also hard for even me to believe - lol, I sat and chilled with Poppy & Daisy. We wandered, I caught a big frog and a tiny one, thew rocks and napped.
Now, I'm home for a bit & paint fumes drift up stairs, the kitchen, it'c coming.
Norm goes non-stop. Bird is happy I am home.
I tell you what... I feel stronger mentally & physically :
God has me on the path, I just have to keep walking.
I know what needs to be done, there is no confusion in my mind.
I know what I want & I will have it.
Focus on what I am here to do. Draw.
I am drawing - it was an overwhelming desire yesterday - to draw about police abuse in America. Why? SPEAK UP!! FOR EACH OTHER! We are ONE it should not be tolerated.
It's getting out of control, no wonder people are shooting cops- who does not think that?
Bring attention to it. Yes, there are great police officer out there but the evidence does not lie- thank God for cameras. More on it tomorrow.
Understand also- I have a few Americans I'm really fond of - hee hee, seriously, I think about them and it's heart breaking. I want to have a few acres and tell them come on up, put up a tent and hang out. This toon is born of love from my friends and I feel it does speak the truth.
Trump or Hillary? .. .Hillary.
A Thank YOU Universe & to my good friend Jim, I love that Guy & everyone knows it.
I was telling Storm what a wonderful friend he's been all these years, so many laughs.
For assisting in providing me with peace & always showing me love.
You know, as I do with everyone close to me at one time sooner or later it seems...
I put him to the test a few times & he has never left me. XOX Thank God.
xox Have Faith <><
