Prey: the Birds

Prey: the Birds

This is the art I made after the Sept. wedding trip.

Comments

I am in awe of your talent and amazed by your tenacity. Your wedding trip was a horror story to put it mildly. I really hope the wedding cake was out of this world. 

MSi: First sxi '93 dxi '09 no obvious relapses just steady decline since '07. Crippling fatigue, too weak to sit up for extended periods of time. Cane/walkers/electric chair inside, helicopter outside. 

Started protocol 11/16/13.  1200mg N

Nancy, good grief: I larged this up on my PC and it is truly amazing, even though I can see where you got the people from.  It is lke a nightmare that you wish you could awake from.  I guess there is a lot from your wedding journey in it!................Sarah

A Journey through Light and Shadow

Completed Stratton/Wheldon regime for aggressive secondary progressive MSi in June 2007, after four years, three of which intermittent.   Still improving bit by bit and no relapses since finishing treatment.

Hi Nancy,

Your art is - as Sarah put it - truly amazing.  Reminscent - for me - of Salvadore Dali.

Best & Highest Regards,

Tom

Hopefultoo! Thank you. It's kind of amazing what one has to go through to give birth to a picture like this (and there more injuries that I left out)! But, really, the wedding was great in every way. (Still, that marriage had better last.)

It felt, as I leaned against a table and danced (I love to dance!) like a last hurrah. And so here I am; ready to down mountains of pills again (no! no! not flagyli!!) rather than retire to a nursing home.

Actually, Sarah, there were no birds at the wedding, nor did I notice Ribera's almost naked guy or Bosch's weirdo. Skeletons, well, sure.

The sensation of doing the picture was intense and enjoyable even though eacd day I was more exhausted than the last. If I could always work at this level I don't think I'd live long.

I had nightmares for 4 nights but each night was less scary and on the 5th night I dreamt a lovely painting of floating colors.

Thanks so much, Tom. Dali is not amongst the people I quote in the 20th century.

What I make is as much a surprise to me as to anyone else. But what I see in this is my art histoy background and my famiarity with the dramatic  paintings of the Renaissance. It just happens.

Awesome painting!  And amazing to hear about your creative process. 

Thanks Louise.
