I must say it was nice to take a TiniWeenie break- and NOW my mind is full cannabis mode again... Not long now! I find I just wan tot paint positive images with cannabis- because it is a healing, helping plant.
Did you read about Monsanto? This was the best news I have read in a very long time!
I cried of few tears of joy for this guy & the planet.
Last week (just days before the Tiki Show) I was sent an e mail from someone...
in it I was informed: "And for the record, your art is not that great. The only thing that makes it great is that you are so handicapped and you can still draw. Its more like charity art.” This same woman told me "my face is ugly" and others would be ashamed to be seen with me. She even went to the extent to add "(YES UGLY)" in case I missed it the first time. Was I shocked? No, because I know who sent it.
A seriously mentally ill woman - she's proved it several times over, if I shared details with you - yes, you'd be shocked but why bother - WHY give this "evil" any more attention at all?
Did the art comment hurt - hell no. That I know is coming from a jealous, insecure - uncreative person. Making fun of me - ? - just like How Trump makes fun of people with disabilities - she is American - so that explains a lot.
Yes, my disability is visual but hers is deep dark and hidden.
YES! I am handicapped with these hands -it's beyond my control & I AM proud I get out of bed EVERY day & continue to PAINT! Continue to inspire and continue to be ME! Continue to put this "ugly face" & paintings out there! Unlike some who just run around in their own brain trying to figure out how they can hurt others by causing destruction & pain.
The face comment- yes it hurt... it hurt because I know it's true, I know how I look when my face contorts and it hurts and I don't like it - so she was just being her TRUE, nasty bitch shelf buy sharing that with me. We all know how crazy some women get over lying cheating boyfriends, she's hurt and wants to hurt anyone & anything she can. My face may be 'ugly' to some (my son thinks I'm beautiful, my dogs too by the way - lol ) but this woman - she IS UGLY to the CORE.
I'm grateful for the lesson. I'm more grateful that I had an amazing conversation last night from someone I admire & respect, he simply reminded me:
Rise above, that is not you - don't be dragged down to their level of low of shameful behaviour. Continue to show your beauty through your art & smile - as crooked as it may be because you ARE love - ly.
Today - I feel fantastic! ready to greet this day & paint! The TiniWeenieTikiShow show was a success! I even paid my handyman!! & my friend Kat- made my day for several reasons- I'm happy we still call each other 'friend' after 30 years and MANY ups & downs. People SMILE when they look at my art- what are you contributing to the world today?
Pain & suffering or Peace and pleasure? Im painting plants, pleasure & peace.
Thank you eveyone who continues to tell me I'm beautiful, I am trying hard to keep putting 'this face' out there.. I know what you mean & I appreciate the love but I certainly don't 'NEED' the comments to keep going...
I have God reminding every single day - I am PERFECT exactly as I am.
Time to PAINT Cannabis!! Play with my girls, harass Norm - what can we make now!?!!
LOL OH!! - I am designing my own new day bed! - he is building - Wait & see!! I saw it on line and it is way beyond my current budget- but Norm will make it and it will have even more value - custom made for me - with TLC. Time to get busy!
Below a few photos of the tiki show set up.
