there just was no breathing room with me paying my own bills until I can apply for benefits in the Spring window...then we got the extra dough from the cost of living increase and now I can afford almost a hundred a month in painting supplies...now I can do art shows...painting and sketching my head off right now...thank you for all your support...

thanks manicotti, I am happiest when I am not hindered by money to create art. It's a part of me...like playing music...thank goodness the guitar hardly costs much to upkeep.

just finished "spirits in the trees" a past delusion of mine. creepy...three trees all bare and intricate limbs interrwining against a black night. with a large moon shining buried in the limbs but just enough to see most of it. the trees each have a different color of pair of eyes looking at you.

@haystackI think that's true of everyone haystack. Bills are a pain in the butt. Guitars don't have any upkeep costs do they? Strings aside, but they're cheap.
