This was on hard wood panel.
The bright pink underpainting lent a brightness
to it.  Going to paint more clouds coming up.

heartbreak, oil on paper

This was from yesterday.
My Kroger roses helped me get through a rough patch.
Hope you enjoy.
...and I don't want to confuse you by posting my foods that
I am trying to eat to stay healthy.  But isn't it good that
I have a life outside of art?  I knew you would understand.

Snack time food journal tale the sweet tooth down....a fresh Orange...

 I have begun to eat healthier.  I am still mad at myself for eating way too much the day before I
began this.  I feel guilty for even thinking that gorging on food would make me feel better.
I want to change the way I think about food.  I don't want to use it as something that I can turn to when I am feeling down, or blue, or excited.  I can feel those things, but I don't want to see food as something that will take away sadness, or make a good thing better.
