Please Help Save Norbit the Chihuahua

NorbitsmileUPDATE : You Did It!

We had enough for everything with $5 left over.

Wow my friends are awesome friends. Thanks to YOU we had enough to cover it. Exactly enough. Now we need to talk – what art do you want? Message me here and let’s talk about repaying your awesomeness. Do you want cash in a few weeks when the IRS will be allowing me to have some of my own money back? Let’s do that if you want.

Norbit got better in the waiting room (do your furry babies do that to you?) with only minimal labored breathing and no crying, but the minute the vet touched his neck, he started hacking, really laboring to breathe and gagging. But his lungs are clear – thank goodness. There’s no definitive diagnosis right now. He left with a cough suppressant, and a course of antibiotics because there may be some bacterial action causing this in his windpipe.

He may have early collapsing trachea – and we’re getting him checked for that again the end of the month when he goes in again. But fortunately, even though it’s a chronic condition – it is manageable from what I am being told. So we’ll watch for that.

I could not have done this without you – and you and YOU Thank you for being there, thank you for being my friend, and most of all – thank you for helping Norbit.

To Jenn, who suggested Pet Insurance – I am subscribing. Lesson learned.

2014 was a horrid year income-wise – 2015 is already looking up.

I attached a couple of photos of Norbit being awesome at the vet – man he is so good for them. My dog I had years ago bit a vet square in the face.

Good morning,

It’s 5 in the morning and I’m looking for payments today to cover a trip to the vet, and I want to give you something for your money-this isn’t just asking for $. Please read on.

I need your help. In the past 48 hours something has gone really wrong with our chihuahua Norbit. He is coughing, gagging, and his breathing is super labored, he cries a little with every breath.

It’s heartbreaking and instead of getting better in the past 24 hours- it’s gotten worse. This dog is more than a dog, he’s a member of the family and he owns my heart.

I need to get him into the vet TODAY and it’s embarrassing, but I’m broke. November and December are usually awesome months for art sales but this year I made about less than $500 in a time I normally pull 2K a month. Holidays were really lean this year. And you know vets don’t see you unless you can pay. Nothing against vets – that’s how it works.

===For YOU===:
I will either repay you for whatever you give with my tax refund the first week of Feb. OR you can choose to have an artwork created just for you!
My paypal is -write a note with your payment to tell me which you want.

If you can’t help at this time – please share
Maybe someone in your friends list would like something custom painted. Gotta save our dog.

That Time the Baby Ate the Seeds original acrylic outsider art

Pic-01042015-002 Pic-01042015-001I did my very best to keep my kids from putting random stuff in their mouths when they were babies. Wasn’t a lot of random stuff to find – but my daughter managed to nearly give me a stroke when she was about 18 months old. I thought she was snoozing on the love seat (famous last mom words right?) and I went to return a phone call, turned around as I was dialing, and she’d put one of my tiny hoop earrings in her mouth and swallowed. This was a kid what would spit back peas or yams like a champ – that earring went straight down….

I flipped out and called the doctor and she said, it would probably pass through but obviously watch it for a day  and if nothing showed up in her diaper, bring her in. So I wanted, fed her extra, and sure enough there it was in the diaper. I boiled it and stuck it in her baby book with the story…. she was sufficiently grossed out when she got older. As was her younger brother when he learned the story of the greenish gold hoop earring. :)

This piece is 8 x 10 and currently for sale at Ebay – if you’d like to buy it directly from me, just contact me below:

My Inner Child Wears Fuzzy Bunny Slippers

$_12I’ve done a couple of self portraits of my inner child – this one is the closest I think.

She holds a skull for my totally morbid sense of humor, her hair is every color mine has been, I always try to have some lipstick on, and of course I freakin’ LOVE to eat so she’s got a great bag of Inner Child Chow. Fuzzy bunny slippers are cuz i like my tootsies WARM.

If you’re interested in purchasing her, just contact me!

Just Admit it Bill, Acrylic outsider art 5×7

001 (2)I’ve been following Bill’s story with great interest. It’s amazing to see how what this man has been accused of can literally divide a room. He’s a brilliant guy, there’s no denying that. But evil? That remains to be seen. I will say that my personal opinion that belongs to me is no one wants to known as the woman drugged and raped by Bill. Women don’t usually gather in groups to claim they’ve been drugged and raped.

This is a 5×7-inch acrylic painting.

Lost Gods – How the Owl Goddess Came to Be

10892008_10152461946091020_1543544805082196444_n $_12 (31)So I had this vintage photo and her eyes had been scribbled out and her face penciled over with random lines – in short – someone didn’t like her.  I thought since I don’t know the history and I thought she had really fierce eyes from what I could see, I  would turn her into a forgotten goddess with fierce eyes and then she became an owl.

$10 + $2 shipping :)

Our Black Cat Noodles Breathes Through Her Mouth acrylic on wood 3×3

Pic-12262014-002Our cat Noodle is our youngest and she breathes through her mouth.  She makes this groaning, awful noise and there’s nothing wrong, not even allergies. It’s just how she does it. I was watching “Night of the Living Dead” and she scared the jimnies outta me when she came up behind me and went, “Grrooooooaaaannnnnn wheeeeze….” in my ear.
She also drools, and walks through paintings that are drying – frequently.

This piece is currently available on Ebay.
