Demo #1 Sunflower

I started teaching one of my friends how to paint.It’s been quite interesting and honestly;fun. The last time I taught anybody how to draw or paint was 15 years ago when I taught an 11 yr old how to draw his favorite anime character. It was emotional because for the first time in my life someone appreciated my gifts and talents.

 All this painting I’ve done lately has me inspired seeing how I haven’t done it in 15 years. I should do it more often since it keeps my depression under control.

This sunflower was done with a pallete knife and glaze technique. It’s crude and unclean. I have no plans to clean it up because it’s just a demo painting.

Massive headaches

I was painting a demo for my friend whom I started to teach how to paint when I got this huge massive headache. I think my vp shunt has finally had it.  You see folks I have a verticular peretenal installing (VP shunt) to keep my hydrocephalus in control. What is hydrocephalus? It’s an over production of the cerebral liquid that surrounds the brain.

My mom has always informed me of what my happened if it were to clog or need replacing. She said I would have massive headaches and start to go blind. Well guess what folks? I think it’s happening. I started getting these massive headaches and I started wearing my glasses more often. My energy is gradually being drained. I may have to have it replaced or adjusted. It was a good run this VP shunt of mine and if something happens, I’m not scared. I think I’m ready to go.
