Knowing he is sick is thanking God for every sunrise we see together, and cursing Fate for potentially robbing us of so many more.
Knowing he is sick is watching him trying to catch his breath after taking a shower.

Knowing he is sick is loving him more deeply, more passionately and more truly because whatever time we have left is all that matters.
Forty One
This is a symbolic self portrait. Each item is important to me and is the culmination of my life to that point. Taking a cue from Adele, I simply named it after the age I was when  I completed this.

Enlightenment (No Enhancements)
Another self portrait, actually more timely than the first "Soul Keeper" as I still can't reach the lotus. I need to rework this painting (the eyes are derpy) and add medical things to the pile of obligations that keep me from reaching peace. The camera was also not the best, hence the glare.  Oil on canvas 2012

Our furbaby is hurt. www.gofundme.com/5seuzo
Red is a 6 month old Calico Kitten who was rescued from a sewer pipe during a flash flood when she was 5 weeks old by our neighbor who brought her and her litter to us since we are the only cat experts in the neighborhood.

Today Red was playing with her brother and while trying to pounce on him misjudged a distance and hit a corner of furniture at a deadly speed.

The result was this:





A shattered thigh; something that is not an easy fix by any means. The surgery will consist of her thigh bone being pinned back together and wire wrapped so she can live an ordinary life.

However; my family cannot afford the surgery on our own. We need help. If we cannot get the money together Red is in serious trouble.

The surgery is well over $1500 this includes: Surgery, Medication, Therapy and any other things we would need to help her heal.

Even if all you can spare is a penny, please do! Help save Red!

No problem. I love anti-villians more than anti-heroes.
