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

    $_12 (30)[update] this piece was purchased and will be part of a silent auction to raise awareness for domestic violence.

    I wish I would have know the intention – I would have totally donated it!

    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.

  • It’s Always the Person You Suspect the Least… New Artwork

    I am by nature a trusting person. I assume everyone has the best intentions always – yeah it’s bit me a few times too. It’s always the person I suspect the least is the biggest ass.

  • Russell’s Awesome Invention

    Russell made a great invention. This marvelous machine would take your inner self and make your outside match your inside.
    He tried it on his dog first, and the dog became even more beautiful.
    He tried it on a mouse and the mouse became stunning.
    Finally, he tried it on himself and he unfortunately had his face rearranged into a gigantic sphincter.
    Then no one would fund his project. _____________________________________________________________

  • Tina is No Good at Starting Conversations –

    I actually painted this about 2 years ago when the actual incident that lead to this painting occurred.
    There was a stepmother who absolutely ignored her stepdaughter.
    In over 6 years, not one single email, text message, letter or phone call to her step daughter that she claimed she wanted to be part of their family.
    She instructed her own children to have little to do with the step-daughter and being dutiful kids, they did.
    The stepmother would ask others about her stepdaughter even when the girl was in the room.
    If the stepdaughter spoke to her stepmother, she would be met with a grunt or silence.
    Every photo of the step-daughter was removed from the walls of the house save one left the father’s study.
    And when the daughter confronted her father and asked him to intervene and please talk to his wife and help everyone find some common ground, her father simply told her that her stepmother wasn’t good at starting conversations.

    I feel bad for them both, they missed out on knowing a great kid ๐Ÿ™‚

    ACEO Card Set

    I bumbled onto the Crime Library to read more about the Mountain Meadows Massacre and there was this other article I clicked on and it was the Top Ten Bestiality Cases. It was mugshots and a short synopsis of what these people did and I was just reading a couple thinking wow these are bad people and then I drew them and wrote my take on the synopsis on the back (basically an even shorter synopsis).

  • A is for Alcoholic

    For years I lived with an alcoholic.
    If it is true alcoholics have a personal hell, so do the people on the other side of that bottle.
    You’re trapped never able to have friends over, never able to attend a social function, never able to plan ANYTHING because the alcoholic in your life can wreck those plans in the time it takes to empty a pint of Jack.

    First you lie to everyone about why you can’t do this or that, then you make deals with your Alcoholic and even throw down ultimatums and then you get real about it.
    It was never anything you could control and you have realize you’re responsible for your own happiness and sometimes having happiness involves not having that person in your life if they aren’t interested in walking on a healthier road.

    I’ve talked with a lot of people in relationships with alcoholics over the years and it’s amazing how similar all of our stories were with our experiences and challenges.
    I can say, for myself, I found happiness. ๐Ÿ™‚

    And I love making Artist Trading Cards or ACEO’s (Art Cards, Editions and Originals) – you’ve been warned.

  • Manipulator or How I Turned Someone Into a Lying Alcoholic

    Don’t you detest people who can’t take responsibility for their own choices?
    Okay you love to get drunk – own it.
    Getting plastered is not my cup of coffee but whatever, don’t blame other people “making” you do it.
    And definitely, don’t blame me for the bad choices you make and continue to make.
