Self-portrait of sorts called Half Blind. It’s not really me, but I relate to being half blind, since I’m blind in my left eye. If you’ve been following me for a while, you probably recognize this one. I had it finished at one point, but decided for some reason that I didn’t like it. It’s been floating around my studio for a couple years now. I either have to finish it or paint over it. It deserves to be finished, I think, but time will tell. lol I’m pretty frustrated with it. Grr!!
I ate gluten free corn tortillas for dinner two nights ago. It’s not something I usually eat. I haven’t had any for years, but it said GF in big letters on the front of the package. About an hour later, I was doubled over in pain. I looked at the label on the tortillas, and it was GF, but not wheat free. I was like, how does that happen???!! So, I Googled it, and companies often take the gluten out of the wheat, and put the wheat back into the food, I read here. I am super allergic to gluten AND wheat.
Ok, BIG lesson finally learned. This is the second or third time I’ve made this mistake, and each time it makes me so ill I can’t function for days and days. I’m still not well, but I am sitting up this morning and typing, which is better than yesterday. I guess this is the stuff one writes about when blogging more, documenting more, which was my New Year’s resolution. I’m going back to eating whole foods and fresh fruit. No more GF foods for me. I better not be writing about this subject again this year. Arrgh.
I’m off to get my new license with my new name. I’ve put it off long enough. haha I don’t like going to the DMV. Who does? I actually went once, and forgot to bring mail with my street address on it, so they sent me back home. ugh. As long as I’m not 85th in line, like I was one time, and have to stand in line outside, I’ll be all set.
This was taken last night after I was finished. My overhead lights were making it look much more yellow than it really was, but I like this picture.
There are 41 of them, if I counted right. Big giant ones, too. This is just one little stack.
Miz Katie needs a new camera. I had to borrow Greg’s today. Mine is getting old, and cranky. So, I’ve been painting like crazy to get one. It’s getting serious now!
