@Shaggydags @missjessarae @raindogdude  Thanks so much everyone. I hoped I had gotten in but it came out a month late. I'm so excited!  People wrote poetry to my work.  @lucerne they published the painting I named after you. 
missjessarae:

I'm letting my self make again. It feels good to stretch my muscles on the page. Feels amazing today. I finally got to sleep a few extra hours on my day off.

Me too on the three day weekend. @glass42

I've been at war with myself the last few days. I'm letting go of all my labels...artist,painter,deep thinker.....ok I am those things but I have to stop putting so much weight on them.

@glass42 :) she loves to make that face at people. 
glass42:
I assume this is the same face she uses when telling spooky stories to little kids around camp fires.  " . . . and then . . . "

I think I'm losing it. This is such a great year for me but the few bits of hate I have gotten has really dragged me down. I found my groove again in painting. I have a groove but it evolved and I was afraid it was to much like my heroes but it honestly some how became more me. I love that. I...

@glass42 you are a good friend man. I will take your advice. I also am taking some time off from posting art on FB. They are to negative for me.

Oh sure you can.  "It is a subconscious expression of the power of discordant images as a way to focus our attention on humanities evolution from the literal awareness of reality born of direct experience to a more figurative focus on hyperdetails stemming from the quasi-reality of electronic media."                 Hey man, I was a communication teacher for almost 20 years.  I can make up shit like that all day.
