495000 was the count after everything they threw at me in the hospital, early this month. Up from 6000 platelets. Norm is 300000. Blood, we’re working on it. Painting is good!
This small painting has monofilament lines embedded into the surface. This is a problem in our oceans. On show at HCAC Small works show.
All summer there were floods. This is one of five paintings in the Small Works Show.
Some paintings I struggle with. This one came fast and furious.
This is one of five of my paintings on show at the Haywood County Arts Council Small Works Show, thru Dec. There are many artists represented. Which one is your favorite?
My ITP went kaboom last Tues. and landed me in the hospital, again. As we try to get a handle on the malady, I am trying to understand it through paintings. There are three elements that I’m going to focus on. Platelets (that may or may not look like pickles), Antibodies, and my Immune Response ( IR). Short explanation of the problem is that my IR detects antibodies on my platelets, and throws out everything! Normal platelet level is 300,000. Last Wed. mine were down to 6,000. Bleeding is a big concern! This is not a medical illustration, but a learning journey.
Do some leaf peeping on your way out to my studio. Deb Parmele will also be showing in my studio, so you’ll get to see two different artists.
GMO Giraffe, they’re looking for a way to package you nice and neatly.
Fri & Sat. is the Haywood Artists Studio Tour. I will be showing my new work, which shares the theme of our environment under siege fro 10-5 each day.
On Sat. the newly RENOVATED Auditorium will be host to the Halloween Carnival from 5 to 10 p.m. I’m in the gym, the carnival is in the brick school building, and supper is in the cafeteria. Come see the exciting new things at the Fines Creek Community Center!
Getting ready for the Studio Tour. This year Deb Parmele, jeweler, will be showing with me. Good time to take a drive out into the country! The cubbies before, and after Gregg made sliding doors for them. THANKS, GREGG!
