ALOT GOING ON... NEW PAINTING SOLD & SOME PERSONAL STUFF TOO
Hey guys...it's Loren here. It's been awhile since I posted here and I wanted t let you know what has been going on. Lot's of personal stuff and some business stuff too.
This new painting, 'A DISTANT MEMORY' has gone on to it's new owner, Chris. I was so happy to deliver it to him. It is part of a series that I have been working on featuring landscapes, seascapes and urban landscapes. The size is 20 x 16 and it is acrylic on canvas. It has sooo... much texture and brilliant color and it 'pops' right off the canvas. I used a palette knife for the entire painting. Lot's of fun. One of my fav paintings.

INTUITION & BAD DRUGS
About 4 months ago, I was put on a medication which gave me a severe side effect for a disorder which could have been FATAL!! Had I not known the warning signs and trusted my intuition, I may have been exiting this world. Literally! The doctor who put me on the medication, told me I would be fine on it, even though I took it once before and had such a severe reaction to it in 1992 The doctor I had was inept and unethical and he disregarded that I had it listed as an allergy in my records. He changed my records and removed the allergy warning, which I did not know until later on. He insisted that I needed to take it and it had me feeling like I was at the mercy of his treatment. Needless to say, the doctor is GONE and I am feeling much better! What a scary time. I am telling you about this because I want to express the importance of trusting your gut and intuition and following your heart and mind. If I was not paying attention to the warning signs, even though the doctor said the medication was not causing them, I might not be here today. So, PAY ATTENTION and TRUST YOURSELF ! You are you're best advocate and don't let a doctor influence your treatment just because he is a doctor. They don't know everything and they make mistakes, sometimes FATAL ones!. Now life does go on...thank God.
UGHHH!!! I've been having some neurological problems which began some years back and they have gotten worse this past year or so. I had a test done and I found out that I have nerve damage in my legs which is coming from my back, as well as problems in my arms and hands. It has been making it harder to paint with a palette knife and to do fine motor things like buttoning buttons, zippering my jeans and leaning on my right arm. The damage in my legs is troublesome because it's hard to walk long distances without my legs going numb to the point where I have to stop walking. I'm doing exercises to strengthen my back that might help with walking and going up and down stairs. I'm also going to get an MRI to see why I am having trouble with my arms and hands. I am hopeful that these problems will get better. What's most upsetting is not being able to use my hands how I want to.. If I can't do that, I am lost. I use my hands to make so many things everyday that they are as necessary as breathing to me. They are my lifeline.
Well that wraps it up for now. Leave a comment to let me know if you have had a similar situation as I did? Thanks for reading this post!! Cheers, Loren
