Get me off this merry go round

This week has been hell.... LJ went in for surgery on Tuesday, almost didn't make it and didn't wake up until Friday. We have all been holding our breath, crying and praying (or lighting candles). So it has been an emotional roller coaster. Bad news is they were not able to get all of the tumor out this time....So no artwork this week.....but here is a sunset photo I took from my front yard. We do have amazing sunsets here.

Winds of Change

First off, I will no longer be employed by my present company starting Nov 16th, 2007. Which I believe (or am trying to believe) in the long run is the best thing. Maybe more details later.

This spread I did in an altered book for our local altered art group. The theme was travel...all I could think of was space travel.

And more bad news: My friend LJ's brain cancer was not touched by the radiation. The tumor was growing the whole time she was under going treatment. The tumor, in three months time is 1/2 the size it was when she had it removed. She goes under the knife again on Tuesday, then will be joining a study group trying a new drug which has shown good results in her type of brain cancer.

Kind a makes losing a job seem pretty trivial.

Well this is the week we find out who's jobs will be outsourced. Today is our big department meeting and on Thursday we have our one-on-one's to tell us who will be leaving the company.

So this weekend I played with my oil pastels and came up with these little beauties. It helps keeping busy other wise my mind is so scattered I can hardly get anything done.

I just about rubbed my finger raw blending the pastels....finally got a paint rag to use instead of just my finger...duh...

This little guy has been sitting on my desk for months. Had drawn him up but just never got around to painting him. Well that rust colored oil pastel was screaming that it was the right color for the little fox.

Off to get ready to go to work. Sigh.

For a friend

Just had to share. Hoping she doesn't visit my blog as this is for her b-day.
