A surprise through the post.


My daughter took 3 of my paintings to England the time befor this weekend when she visited me.I had asked her if she could get them framed for me because here it is extremly expensive. She showed them to  an artist ,Brian Oxley, I had bought a painting I love from him many years ago. She wanted  advice on the framing,instead he framed them. He wrote to me saying they were excellent and would like to buy one if I were to bring some over next time I am in England. I have loved painting but since they are abstract essentially,well to me, sort of arranging colour I couldn't imagine anyone thinking they were good or even interesting .I put on layer after layer until a moment arrives and I know its time to stop.I wish I could download a photo of one or two but this computer still refuses to download them. .It gave me a huge lift. Tony hit on the idea of buying me a table like the ones they put over you bed so you can eat in hospital.I shall have one here so when I feel not too awful  I can paint in bed.I feel so cheered up and more positive about coping with my next chemo sessions.LOL Jill

  3. Jill,
    That is great news about your paintings! I'm not sure you know how talented you are. When I see your handmade dolls on your blog, it makes my heart sing. I hope you feel good over the holidays, dear. I'll be thinking of you along the way.

    Love,

  4. What a great idea. I remember well when I was quite ill and feeling weak and sick, etc. that I learned to live my life one hour at a time. I still am in the habit of doing that. Well, even a few minutes can allow a creative moment and then later in the day, a few more creative moments can be possible with that table set up. I hope one day that you can upload your art; I look forward to seeing it dear Jill; I am thinking of you; hugs, Norma, xo
