"When you get those rare moments of clarity, those flashes when the universe makes sense, you try desperately to hold on to them. They are the life boats for the darker times, when the vastness of it all, the incomprehensible nature of life is completely illusive. So the question becomes, or should have been all a long... What would you do if you knew you only had one day, or one week, or one month to live. What life boat would you grab on to? What secret would you tell? What band would you see? What person would you declare your love to? What wish would you fulfill? What exotic locale would you fly to for coffee? What book would you write?"


My Latest Project(s)

Hey All!

So If you noticed, I moved my "Latest projects" over to "The Artist in Me", as they weren't really my "latest" anymore. Instead, check out my latest!!


Here is the original picture:


This was taken by a rather good friend, and little did I know she was a very good photographer! Some of her work caught my eye on my breezethrough of Newsfeed one day, and I looked through the rest of the album and saw this and fell in love. Now I had been searching for just the photo to try a new technique on that I made up in my head involving a set of checkers where half the drawing was completed and the other not. As soon as I saw this I knew it was just the one to try it on...

















To me, the drawing is a symbol of love in the "best friends" kind of way. Sisterly love. Like these two girls that have their feet intertwoven together....they know each other better than they know their own selves...They have a deep connection, and you can tell this just by the mannerisms of their feet...without even seeing the two of them together.  The light touch of love on the left mixed with the crunched up bundly mess on the right, mix that with the checkers and mismatched shoe shading, and you have a whole deeper message. This will go down in my personal history as one of my favorites.....

Thank you J.L.,the photographer- you do lovely work and I hope you continue to do more....









 With love,


The Artist in the Nurse's Body
