I must be going through a mid life crisis or something. Or maybe its my horoscope:

From Horizons, Virgo:

This is a time of major transformations on every level of your life. Change is equal to a sort of death, not your own but a change in the way your life used to be. Just because things are different does not mean that somehow everything is ruined, that is not the case. When you let go of the control and the fear of not having control, you will be transformed.

Kind of a scary horoscope, but pretty right on for my life right now. Maybe this is why I bought a hair straightner (I actually bought it before I read the horoscope), and why I have an appt with some famous makeup artist person at Lancome tomorrow. Maybe its also why I went to an herbal store this week, my first visit(to that store), and why I feel the need to seek spiritual advisement. I also feel the need to diet, and eat healthier again. That's hard to do when you are busy all the time, but I am going to try (again).

Hope this message finds you all well. My painting has been at a standstill lately. I am exhausted, most of the time. I will try to resume as soon as possible.

Today's Answer

A beautiful bird from the Brevard zoo. I have so many good shots its hard to chose one. I'm trying to do about one new one a day. I also have an awesome jaguar clip that I'm going to post at some point.

Today's Guess

I think this one will be a bit easier to guess...

Yesterday's answer is...Rhino skin. I started taking close ups so that if I ever get to paint again, I can get the texture right. This Rhino was very cooperative, it was a long way off and I started talking to it and it came right up. That was a very cool feeling.

Can you guess this one?

I'm going to be focusing on my photography for the time being as its a medium that I also love, and its honestly quicker than painting. Thank goodness for digital photography, because between my daughter and I we took 470 photos this weekend. Here's another interesting can you guess photo...

Did you guess?

Its an upclose shot of a beautiful bromeliad that was blooming in my yard, and that at some point if I ever find time again, I'm going to paint.
