Enerva, I think you're doing just fine with the light. Check your library for books and CD's. Also utube has a lot of painting videos. I'm taking a class at the Lifetime Learning Center here and it's a lot of fun to paint with others.

And YES, Feelingfeline it's great to be a granny of twins ... it's only hard to wait for them getting out of the incubators.

The paintings are on plexiglass. Same principle as glass : same paints, same mediums.

Did you add the centers later? Or switch colors? They would be cute on tie-backs for white curtains. Or in a bowl like they're floating.

Mominator. Magic circle, SC 12x. Tighten circle. SC into first SC, the in next stitch HDC,DC, HDC. Repeat 4 more times. Slip stitch into first SC ok f 2nd row, Fasten off. Finish by weaving loose ends into back over pins of wearing. I used needle and thread to attach 3 little beads. You could embroider knots too. Its very forgiving if miscounted do 2 together if you have extra SC to use. Do the last SC in the same stitch as the cluster if not enough. If too many stitches, just make a 6 point flower. It only took about 5 minutes a flower, including the beads. LOL. If maguc curcle is too hard, use a 4 stitch ch and crochet into 3rd chain from hook.

Love the pics warrior

Lovely art on here.

Here is a poem I wrote :)


The Flat Chest


there's something kind of noble about a woman with a flat chest

rightness replaces roundness perhaps

a new long white shelf upon which to recreate hope

a changeling now you see reflected back

carved out of you -- a purer space -- perchance


out of the space from which they shaped smooth hope

lightening my way, new hollows replace sloping folds

what of it? am I marked?


my self, my body, whispers – safe you may be.


there's something kind of beautiful about a bald woman

unwillingly, unwittingly clean -shorn

my scull my own geography that I have never seen

how gently do I want to hold it, this new-born

I own my head much more now it seems

and in my dreams, long, glistening hair

to awake – and of course, it's not there


my self, my hair, shrieks -- stay with me.


there's something very strong about a woman with breast cancer

forced to be a warrior when I was still so scared

I'm not equipped, not stationed right, for all this cavalry

my white flag's up, surely someone sees it

forced indominability on me, forced authenticity

that I don't want to be.


my self, my dreams, scream – yes, you may be free.

and yes you will still be.
