my latest commission

This is a “commission” from my husband. lol

My payment is getting another piece of my art on a wall in my house and a fuzzy feeling.

He gets a piece of original at to put on his wall and gets a fuzzy feeling because I spent a long time on it and was really excited about it.

When he asked for the painting I asked for his requirements. He said he wanted something: in acrylics, bright, in blue and yellow and he picked a 16″x20″ canvas.

I like working within restraints because it makes me do things that wouldn’t have otherwise. In this case, it’s the color scheme. I like both blue and yellow but  I wouldn’t have thought of using them together for a combination.

It will hang in a hallway upstairs. There’s a sky light almost directly above it!

little trip to Carmel, CA

This weekend we went on a little vacation. It was just overnight in Carmel, CA which is about 2 hours SW of me, just south of Monterey. It’s a beautiful little town. There is a gallery and boutique sort of downtown, which isn’t my thing. If you get into the residential areas and to the lovely, cold beaches, I love it. Sometimes it’s warm, but mostly quite cool.

The houses are pretty small but beautiful. They’re like fairy houses! They’re not very far from the road or each other, but they’re surrounded by flowers and trees.

It’s very much a pedestrian and dog town. There are people walking their dogs all around the place. Everyone is so friendly!

The stayed in a pretty little cottage with a backyard. It was  an easy walk from a beach. No length of walk is easy for me so I stayed in the cottage and snuggled up in a big chair with a blanket and my dog! My huz sent me pictures of the beach and views around there.

We grilled veggies and sausages. It wasn’t too chilly to sit outside and eat; there was nice furniture out there. Mackie (the dog) got to wander around and hide in the flowers and ferns.

I brought my bong so I could still use my mmj. It was nice to sit in the brisk air to smoke.

They had streaming Netflix so we watched The Matrix Reloaded.

We went to bed early because the bed was insanely luxurious getting under the covers was like being in a giant feather sandwich. It was all so soft and smooth. It’s the only hotel bed that my huzzy could sleep in.

They brought a nice breakfast and we hung out. The drive home was easy.

soooooo totally chill.

Mental health and an abstract painting

 I found out this morning that because of insurance issues I can’t see my psychiatrist of 15 years anymore. The same is true for my therapist. They have covered these things for all this time. 

All of the mental health help I was considered out of network. They changed the the policy to be that out of network mental health coverage is no longer covered at all. Each of the various appointments are at least $400.

Obviously that’s not an option. I don’t know what to do. I guess I’ll ask my Dr and therapist for recommendations of Drs that are in network.

I can’t believe it. Anyone that who is treated for mental illness will understand why I am so upset.

I am overwhelmed. I say this as the caption of this painting because I was pretty happy when I was painting. It was art therapy . I get help for my bipolar and my fibromyalgia and spinal stenosis from that.

Now that’s all the therapy I have.
