Chick-Fil- LIES

Yesterday several friends on Facebook posted the news that Chick-fil-A had changed their tune, had said they would no longer contribute to anti gay groups and would not discriminate against gays! My friends called it a victory and thought it was such great news. I told them ALL that it was a lie, that these people had not changed that they only did this for PR because they were losing business because of the boycott! Well, here is news from today;

So, here is the miniature it is 1 1/2 inches round and will fit in the lockets have been using. Done in Acrylic on Canson paper. Original for sale in locket. Picture 61.

Birthday Gifts

Well, for my birthday I got a round and oval matt cutter (yeah!! Finally I can cu them myself). I got several blank white paper and bamboo Japanese fans to paint. I got a book of art by Stephen Hickman. I got a circular saw and bifold doors (to cut and make shelves out of). I think I got a few other things but can't remember right now. I bought myself a miniature violin for mt BJDs (it is in a case and very detailed and nicely done), got them a miniature silver Samovar, and a lovely wardrobe/chest of drawers. Pictures of some of these will betaken sometime soon and posted.

So far it has been a nice day and I am learning to live in the day and not dwell on the past of worry about the future.

New Balloon

OK, not really a balloon I guess but oh well. Another sudo Steampunk picture. I got a nice little oval frame and decided to try doing something to fit it. Not in my list of things to do, but I am still trying to kick start my art...I like it and  hope I can soon start working on things I should be doing. The idea of this is that it is an astronomical observatory dirigible, the upper section is all glass. This is "Star Gazer", roughly 9 x 12, Acrylic on Canson board. Original and prints for sale. Picture 60.

Long Live the Queen

In Honor of Freddie Mercury's 66 birthday (almost 10 years exactly older than me) here are some of my all time Favorite Queen Songs! This ends abruptly here because it blends into "Funny How Love Is" on the album. and this goes right into "Nevermore"

And this is possibly their greatest masterpiece as far as I am concerned!
And this goes into "Love of My Life". "Night At The Opera" and "Queen II" where most of these come from are complete albums that flow from one song to the other seamlessly in many cases. I highly recommend listening to the whole of each if you never have. They show the genius of Queen better than any one song!

Happy Birthday Freddie, I really miss the music you never got to make!

Death of Joy

So, I had almost a year not really I guess from late November till August when I was happy because my son was back in my life. Because I had a grandson and looked forward to seeing them both at soon point soon. Well, my son has shut me out again with no explanation or reason.. I have heard from others that he is angry with me but no one can or will tell me why! He does not respond  or communicate with me at all now.

My grandson may also be lost to me since his mother and her mother, the only connection I had to him have stoped communicating as well...I am not happy, I am not sure how I can get myself out of this depression. I am getting nothing done and have people I owe art, but I can not work when I can barely function at all due to how I feel right now!

This is a picture of Logan, my grandson...I still hope that someday, while he is still a child, I will get to meet him and be part of his life.
