I DODGED THE SURGERY BULLET SO LET'S PPF!!!

Hi Everyone!

Yaaayyyyy I dodged the eye surgery bullet, for now anyway. I will do some eye meds and other therapies for the next month. Hopefully that will take care of this. I am so excited because the suregery just looks awful. I am one of those people that would rather have a root canal than go to the eye doctor.  I do have an excellent opthomologist, he is  a very cool guy, and hmmm pretty easy on the eyes too. Ha ha no pun intended. LOL Soooo since I have missed several weeks of Paint Party Friday I thought this would be a good celebration. Ohhh speaking of celebrations Mike and I are 33 years together. 
OMG!!!! 33 years  went by so fast.  I have lots to be happy and thankful for. 
So.... I have a few paintings that I did over the last few weeks. Some I had started and set aside. 
You know sometimes that is just needed for a piece.

Here is the one that I set aside about a month ago and finished up the other day. This actually started out with a washed background then applying some yellow paint. As the paint was going on I instantly saw the face. The face looks familiar to me. Like maybe a real person or another image. I promise this just came from my head and through my hands.

 I love the way the paint crackled.

Missing my beloved red I did this two canvas abstract that now hangs in my dinning area. 

And last in line for tonight is this 18x18" abstract. I wish I could get a better photo of it so you can see the depth of colors in this piece. Looks like flowing lava.

Wishing all of you a great weekend and a huge thanks to Kristen and Eva for hosting Paint Party Friday.
Be sure to visit all of the artist who participate. You will see some amazing art.

  5. Beautiful! I too set aside works and let them sit a while before they get finished. Seems they need a bit of aging to come to completion. Good news about the eye surgery.

  7. Lovely work. Glad your eyes are getting better. Eye surgery has helped me a lot, I have had 11 OPs up to date, and would be blind without them! Valerie

  10. Hi Nicole, I hope your eye treatment goes well. Lovely abstracts, my favourite is the first one. 33 years together! Congratulations and happy anniversary!

  11. Of course I love your art. Glad you didn't have to have eye surgery. A few years ago Terry had emergency laser surgery for a tear in his retina that was near a nerve. He couldn't do anything, even watch TV for 2 weeks. It's a hard recovery for an active person!
    Be well and have a great weekend.
    xx, Carol

  19. I am so glad!! Anything to do with the eyes is scary, I have now only vision in part of one eye and it scares me to think I may lose that but lets not think of bad stuff when we have such beautiful painting to see, amazing work, I love what you do!

  20. I'm glad you've dodged the bullet this time around! I love your artwork. My favorite is the one where the paint crackled...When I look at it--it seems to hold some great mystery.

    I know how you feel because I've been with my husband for 35 years... I'm not sure how that can be because I'm only 19!
