It's Been Awhile!

"Macs", 8"x8", Oil on Board
Hello Everyone! Yes, I know it's been a long time since I've posted any new paintings. I've been dealing with some health issues which have really put a damper on my ability to paint. I'm trying to get back at it here and finished this piece of McIntosh apples. I'm not happy with this piece but at least I'm painting again. I also haven't been on-line very much either so hopefully I can get a chance to look at all of my favorite art blogs and catch up on everyone's new work.

Hi Pierre,
It's so good to hear from you. Your new work is incredible! I've been busy trying to get back to my painting...I've had a rough couple of months with chronic pain and haven't felt like doing much painting. Who knows, maybe I'll feel a little better now that summer is on its way. The apple piece has some problems and I'm going to have to go back in while it's still wet to make some corrections. Thanks so much for your support...it means a lot.

very nice paintings Jean. I love your style
Sorry to hear about your health. I pray it is not serious. I myself have undergone a bout with Cancer and looks like I have it pretty well whipped. It can take a lot out of you but I am heavy into painting again.
God bless and keep up the good work

Hi Gary,
Thanks for looking at my work. I have a chronic illness that involves chronic pain. Some months are worse than others and unfortunately it really affects my ability to paint at times. I keep hanging in there and try to keep painting. I'm sorry to hear about your battle with cancer. I hope you have it beat. The one thing I've learned from having health problems is patience. I have an incredible amount of patience now. You try and live one day at a time and do what you can do in that day. Keep in touch!

Jean! Jean! Jean! I have been thinking of you so much lately - and so I came to my computer to send you a personal e-mail asking if you are okay - and here is a new posting!!!! I am so happy to see this beautiful painting and know that you are doing okay!!! This has made my day! Hopefully now that the weather is turning warmer, you will suffer less. Big hugs!

Hi Joanne,
It's so good to hear from you! Yeah, I know it's been awhile but I've had a pretty tough winter/spring. I am trying to work through pain issues and just keep painting as much as I can. The painting didn't come out too good but oh, well! I post my failures on here as well. I hope you've been painting...it will be nice to see what you've been up to. Thanks for dropping me a note and take care!

Hi Jean,

Thanks for the comments on my cow painting...just a note to respond to you to..I would say to paint them if you love them. There are Cow people out there, it's funny. Subject matter seems to have certain sub-cultures who follow certain things. Cows are one of those things. You love them or it's not for you.
Your work is stunning by-the-way..always nice to stop in and see what you are up to. Looking forward to seeing a cow up here some day.

All the best,
Todd

Hi Todd,
It's nice to hear from you. I guess I'm a cow person. I actually have a cow painting hanging in my kitchen. I've never painted animals before so something new is always intimidating. Take care!
