I’m preparing for the inevitable.
I’m going blind. I really am and it’s because my VP shunt is finally failing. After having it in for 47 years with no problems its finally had it. I knew it was causing me problems when I started getting headaches and blurry eye sight. For those of you who don’t read my blog. A vp shunt (ventriculo peritoneal) shunt is controls my hydrocephalus; an over production of the cerebral liquid.
My speech is slurred at times and I lose my train of thought. l’m exhausted all the time, I have a hard time keeping my eyes open and I’m going blind but I’m not allowed to go to the emergency room until I’m completely blind or I feel faint.
In the next couple of weeks I will be taking several trips to the DFW until my surgery because there are no VP shunt specialist here in this rinky-dink town I call home.I will also be doing a lot of drawing and painting just in case something happens. I will have left my mark on the world. I’m not scared. I can’t wait. I will be rid of the headaches for good. But until then I just sit and wait.
I know I’ve already posted this once but this little doodle is the only recent piece I’ve actually completed in the last few months ;by the way,it’s done on a paper towel.
I want an art show. I’ve already gotten some information for one of the local galleries. I just need 10 awesome, beautiful pieces and $125.00 to exhibit for 3 months. I don’t think is going to be hard. I just won’t eat as much and cut back on purchasing frivolous things.
My goal for this summer is to at least complete 4 paintings and 2 drawings.
For the next 3 months I will try to stay focused and stop letting others FUCK WITH MY CHI!
I really just need to stop hanging out with people whom carry a lot of negative energy and I know will definitely bring me down.
I’ve been slacking off lately. I have a lot of W.I.P.’s started and no time to finish them but as soon as the school year ends I will have plenty of time to relax and finish what I started.
I was working on this little doodle when I realized how much I enjoy and miss drawing the human figure.
I have always been fascinated by the human body. It such a well constructed machine. So much fits in such a small space. It’s no wonder it such a mystery.
