Luminous Night Painting
I know all of you did not want me to change up this painting at all.
However the picture i posted last was not the full true image. Half the painting was dark and not showing right due to my bad picture taking! It is hard to show the correct painting via my phone cam. LOL I am so sorry, but i did know that the painting did not look finished.
The top half of the painting was perfect! However because of the amount of darkness on the lower half of my painting, it did look incomplete when viewing it in person. I have tried to keep the integrity of simplicity in this piece. I tried to not add to much so as not to take the impact of the original sky away. As you can see i did add a few more trees to add depth and interest to the painting. I also added a lake at the bottom of my painting. I kept the lake dark, with just a touch of light showing the night sky through out the lake. I think i accomplished a gorgeous painting!
This painting has a lot of meaning for me. It represents my teen years, as well as makes me long for home where my sisters and father still live. I wanted to express the feeling i had when i was only 16 and looking up at the night sky and feeling so very close with God. The moon in the painting reminds me of nights when the moon was so very huge and bright that if i reached up i could feel like i could touch it. It is a painting full of love, beauty and memory.
Thank you everyone for all your wonderful input. I value all your thoughts, ideas, and took all your advice to heart. I kept it simple! :) I hope you all enjoy and still love the painting as much as you did before.
Hugs and blessings sent your way!

My twin Stacy is on her way to the Hospital with major pains in her right side. We are not sure what is wrong , but felt it should be checked out to make certain it is nothing serious. Please keep her in your prayers that it is nothing at all serious.

Update on how things are going.
Pain is the word of the week.
Storms are moving in once again. This is my bad time of the year for those who don't know. When storms move in fibro hits me hard. In this part of the country it is hurricane season. From now until November i tend to have bad weeks. This week it is calling for thunderstorms the entire week! Bangs my head against the wall. lol Ok guess i wont do that because i do not need my head hurting more then it already does. But sheeshhhhhhhh already, i want sun!
On top of that i talked with my doctor, and he wants me to go on a full time program of detoxing. He feels that i do not get rid of toxins like the average person does. Most people naturally absorb toxins from the environment, and they naturally get rid of these toxins through sweat or urine. I however do not do this. So the toxins just build up in my body making me sicker then most. This is his theory anyway. Makes sense to me. Anyway he would like me to do a major detoxing program once again, only this time instead of getting off the program after three weeks, i will continue on a daily program of detoxing in small doses. He feels that this will help me get rid of all the toxins like everyone else. Making it so i do not have a build up of toxins in my body. :) His thought is that eventually i will start feeling better, and not be so sick during detox, because i will have less toxins to rid from my body. This is also hopefully the key to getting my thyroid to work right! Lets pray that he is right.
In the mean time between detoxing, and storms moving in I hurt all over! I am having a hard time thinking, or doing much of anything. Pain makes a person tired all of the time. All i want to really do is sleep. I have been forcing myself to keep up with the house, make dinner for my guys, to also get out and accomplish errands that need to be done, and to continue with my painting. My energy feels sapped truthfully. I am praying that these three weeks go by fast..... and that i will feel better soon.
Hugs and blessings to all. I will be slowly making rounds to all your blogs. Know you are all missed! Hugsssssssss

I have been recovering from not feeling well. Not only have I had a cold, but have also had some bad fibro days. When I was feeling spurts of energy i have had to take care of errands. Sorry I have been absent here on my blog and from commenting on yours.
The wolf picture is my latest pastel work. I just finished it today.
I want to paint a very large mural for my great room. I want the mural to be a woodland scene. It will have not only a wolf, but fox, white owl, raccoon, and a rabbit hiding among the trees. :) Since i really have no experience in painting animals , I have decided to practice them using my pastels. The wolf is my first practice drawing for my mural.
I hope you all enjoy.
Hugs and blessings

Just letting everyone know that i am still around, and doing ok.
I came down with an awful cold last week. It knocked me for a loop truth be told. I spent most of my time just trying to recover. Yesterday was the first true day that i actually felt like my old self.
While i was gone, I noticed my blogger friend Mike left me a blogging award.
It is the I love your blog award! Thank you mike for such a wonderful award. I am truly touched.
I would like to return the favor and give this same award to all the blogs on my blogger friend list. If you are on this list it is because I read your blog and think you are rather special. :)
I hope you all enjoy!
Today i have to play catch up on all my normal errands. Hopefully in the next few days i can sit down and catch up on everyones blog as well catch you all up on what has been happening in my life.
Hugs and blessings sent your way!
