She Knew Every Day She Could Count on Being Yelled At By Him- abstract watercolor 5×7

$_12 (30)I love Reddit. It’s one my fave places on the Internet. I wind up reading Reddit/Relationships – I know a lot of trolling goes on there but some legit sharing too. I read one very detailed and long post from a woman telling about her life with a verbally abusive man. The yelling and tantrums, just wow.

People were commenting to her, why don’t you just leave? She wasn’t in a position to do that financially. She had no job, no support systems, he’d driven off all her friends long ago, no car,no savings of her own he didn’t have access to, and she had a young child to think about. She also feared him because he said he’d disappear with their child on the first visitation. She said he was so charming when wanted to be, he would indeed fool a judge into visitation.

The most shocking part of the entire post I read, was the number of other women in a similar situation. They didn’t have physical bruises but they were verbally abused frequently by the person that was supposed to love them.

This is a 5×7 inches abstract watercolor

My Friend Used to Get in Trouble With her Mother Because She Looked Like Her Estranged Father

$_12 (29)With a friend’s permission, I’ll relate the story behind this artwork. I have a friend and her parents had a majorly unfriendly divorce. So unfriendly that her father finally took a job that took him allllll the way from NY to Alaska so he wouldn’t be coming around so much because the mother was so acrimonious about things.

My friend  only saw her father during the summer and when he could afford to fly her in for the holidays. And when she was home, her mom would get a little too deep into a bottle of wine and start getting angry at my friend for looking like her father. After a few years of swimming in this, Mom gave up drinking and found hobbies that made her happy. Wound up meeting a great guy too.

My friend said now that she’s an adult, been through a divorce herself (kept it friendly for the kids), she can let any animosity she had for either of her parents over the situation go. She said her mom and dad actually manage to have civil interactions all these years later and are Facebook friends. :D

Prayers for Humans Outsider Art

Pic-12012014-002I still think zombies are funny. I am not sure why the dead are so horrifying to some. I was flipping around on Netflix and saw some ghost hunter show. It struck me how funny it is they say “Can you move something?” or ask the ghost to do some sort of simplistic trick to show they are there like they suppose people become idiots after death. “Can you tell me my name?”
I have no idea if anything happens after we die any more than you do, but if it does, I doubt we become morons who can only do simple parlor tricks.

The technique used is hand painted with watercolor and inks on a vintage book page from a children’s hymn book from 1950. It was originally titled, “Prayers and Hymns.” Now it reads, “Prayers for Humans” and little zombie children are hoping their prayers get answered!
.
Dimensions are approx. 5″ x 8″.

Baby Girl in a Purple Hat with a Ferret

$_12I love ferrets. I’ve wanted to add one to our family for a long time but I read they tend to get adrenal disease and insulinoma after the age of 3 in their around 8-year life span.
I love their curiosity and their little hands.
When I painted her I got inspired by Dandy Mott from American Horror Story, and his front forehead curls. :)

She is 5.5-inches by 7.5-inches and is done with acrylic paint directly on a vintage photo.

Her Best Friend was a Green Parrot Watercolor 5×7 Original Painting

$_12 (31)

I love birds. I have had parakeets (well budgies) and a wonderful cockatiel named ChickenBoo that I had for 15 years. He used to call my cats by saying, “Kitty, kitty, kitty!” The cats would come running fully expecting food, and then he’d laugh. I loved that bird.

When I once again live in a home with reliable heat, I want another bird to be a member of fam. :)
