I wanted the melted heart to highlight the text. I thought about adding color to the text boxes. I thought about using a cold color. Maybe silver or blue. I really like the piece. The layering of the colors makes the piece more rich. The multiple layers have a real heart look to them. I hope you enjoy. I have been struggling with relationships lately. In a couple of weeks I will be celebrating my 23 wedding anniversary. These last few days I think to myself it seems so far away.Lack of sleep and stress have exaggerated those feelings. I need to relax.
The wife had to work overtime so I was left watching all four kids all night. Today was hot. Got a sunburn on my neck. The trailer is coming along nicely. Took a great picture of all the metal sides off. Putting them all back on wasn’t so bad. Just need to get the roof on. it would be nice if we can weather proof it. Then we can take the tarp off. Hope to get the floor repaired in the pull out. Then next weekend I can’t the floor down and get the inside walls back up. It’s going to be down to the wire. Then I can spend my time with the family. I need to have some nice relaxing days.
Running a little experiment. I drank coffee at 7:30 pm tonight. You watch I fall asleep right on time. Last night I drank decaf at 500 pm and couldn’t get to sleep last night. I think caffeine has the opposite effect on me. Today was a long day. I wish I could have gone right to bed. Wife went to work so that left me watching all 4 kids. They would never let me sleep. They would pry my eyes open if they thought they were closed to long. It’s going to be a busy weekend. I’m working on my trailer all weekend. Plus I have the kids at night when the wife goes to work. Well no rest for the wicked.
Anyone who has been in a long term relationship gets this drawing. I will be coming ip on my 23 wedding anniversary in May. I will have been in the same relationship for half on my life. I started reflexing on my relationship with my wife. We have said some horrible things to each other over the years but we have said way more loving things. It’s the people that we are closest with that can hurt us but the are the same ones that can build us up.
I’m so tired I am almost in tears. One good thing I uncovered a reoccurring pattern that happens each night that I have to eliminate. I need to focus on having a system not goals. Each night when I go over my days accomplishments I only get stressed out. Instead I need to focus on all the things I do daily to move forward. Keep the positive in my mind. The stress is destroying my sleep. Some weeks I am barely getting 28 hours. An that is a good night if I get 4 hours. Some nights I only get 2. This is a growing pain for the life I’m trying to grow into. Ok I need to try to sleep. I haven’t had any fluids since 4 pm. praying for a good night sleep.
My life would only be full of pain if it wasn’t for you
I suffer from chronic pain. Some days are better than others. Last night was a whooper. I barely sleep. I’m running on fumes. That little bit of fuel I have comes from those around me that love me each and every day. You never know how much your love actions are keeping a person going. Love someone you just may be saving their life.
Having fun playing with shapes. I also wanted to experiment with negative space. This was a fun quick piece. I was thinking are we ever truly alone? I think we make ourselves alone more than we are actually alone. There is always more people in our life that love us than we care to admit. At least that is how it is in my life. Lately life has been a little dark for me I am hoping I can brighten it up this summer.
