What a month. OH, heck I was hoping this month was over already. LOL Thank you for all the comments and emails about osteoporosis. So after extensive research (that still continues) I have chosen NOT to take any of the medical treatments. OMG!!! the side effects are horrible. I have spoken to many men and women who have take the bisphonates and every one of them said they wished they hadn't. With lupus I can not afford to upset my system. Even without lupus I would not take these meds. I have already started on a bone building vitamin and exercise regime in addition to my lupus regime. Now, I exercise everyday, however, osteoporosis exercises are quite different from the intense boxing, kicking, hip hop dancing that I do now. I found an excellent web site out of Canada that specializes in osteoporosis. In addition to that I have found a new health care provider that is a real MD and female. I do have to drive 80 miles one way to see her but I believe it is worth it. I have learned a lot about this disease and am confident that I can beat this too. OK enough of that crap. LOL This is Paint Party Friday and I have been absent, but I am back and I have art.YAY!!
First a huge thank you to Eva and Kristen for always hosting the best party. I look forward to seeing what all of you have been up to. Now for the art. I have been beading, and making cabochons. As most of you know I was a bead artist before lupus finally made it impossible to bead. The last several months my hands seem to be better, well they are not shaking any more, so I have beaded a few pieces. Gees am I a jabber-er tonight? LOL Sorry for the long post.
Here is the art. I hope you enjoy it.
This is the finished piece from a few weeks ago.
I made the cabochon too.
Many layers to create heighth
This is a piece I finished the other day. I also created the cabochon. Paint on glass working from the back side so you paint backwards. Best way I can describe it. LOL
I had such a great response on the sparkle cabs that I made a few dozen.
These are black resin cabs that I painted. The are spaaaaakkkkklllllyyyyyy and smooth to the touch.
Thanks for stopping by and please leave a comment.
Honor and integrity in art, in life.
