River scene in Oregon

I think this is going to be inspiration for a painting.  It is so serene and yet the sound is almost deafening....maybe it helps to clear the mind...and quiet the soul.

Pour Paining / Curved Glass

This is a black, green and white pour painting I did on a piece of curved glass.  I love the way these turn out and am glad I still have some more in my stash.....I remember buying these in California 15 years ago.  I knew I would use them eventually.

Fall Leaves

I LOVE the colors of fall....it is so beautiful here in OR.   Reminds me so much of my hometown state of PA especially in the fall.  We don't have the hills and valleys like PA but as the Bend grew so did the trees and bushes and they wisely planted those that change color in the fall to gorgeous shades of oranges, and reds, yellows and brown.

 My daughter and son in law have a store and in the front area she has 2 pine trees (as there are so many here in the more rural areas) and decorates them with the season or holiday.  I am hoping she will like these once I get the backs done, the holes driller and the string to hang.

September first is right around the corner and I have absolutely NO idea where summer went.  Seems we were just waiting for it a week ago and it is on its way out...hoping for a long fall and a short winter.

These are wooden circles that I pour painted....well actually, dipped in run off from a curved glass piece that I poured first.

HAPPY FALL TO ALL and to All a good night....

I am 70+, married for 42 years with a daughter and step son and 3 grandchildren. I am fed up with prescribed medications which either don't take care of the problem or create side effects for additional problems and physicians who have become big business vs caring for their patients...and endorse the pharmaceutical products for the company "perks" they receive.  There is a book out written by a physician called Drug Dealer M.D. and should be read for an eye opening experience.

Problem #1.
In January of 2017 I was diagnosed with AMD macular degeneration in my right eye.  I experience distortion both near and far as well as a blind area.   It came on quickly.....overnight and when I fell down 4 steps because I didn't see them I knew there was something that needed immediate attention.
I am an artist so you can imagine what a diagnosis like this does emotionally.  I underwent 18 months of shots in my eye....  (38 total) a numbing shot and the medication which was a cancer medication proven to stop the progression of the disease.  Each office visit was over $6,000.00 and paid by my insurance company (Medicare and United Health) with no money out of my pocket.  The first 3-4 months I saw some improvement in my eyesight but after that there was just changing eyesight distortion I had to readjust to.   The last 2-3 months I took the shots I spent 2 days in bed, my eye bleeding,  sharp stabbing pains, etc.   In May when I had my shots I informed the physician that I was going to stop treatment......which I have done.  I have a lot of scarring in this eye from so many shots as was shown to me by my Optometric Dr. I see for eye exams to get new glasses.   EVERY month now I see progress in my eyesight in this eye, the blindness has become more of a ghostly shadow than an actual blind area.  My perifial vision is also improving and I am able to distinguish objects at close range but distance, although improving is still not good but better than it was.  I take about 15 drops of 500 mg CBD twice a day and I KNOW without a shadow of a doubt that my eyesight in that eye is improving.  I told my optometrist that I was taking CBD and she said to me "you do know that AMD is an inflammation disease don't you?" AND that there is a good chance that it will help the disease.
I told her that I felt it had and she advised me to DO NOT STOP taking the CBD.  I will go back to her in 6 months and she is going to retake the X-ray so we can physically "See" the change for comparison purposes.  AMAZING.

Problem #2.
Approximately 5 years ago I developed swelling, heat, excruciating pain, redness etc. in my left foot.  I went to an orthopedic Dr. who told me I had plantar faciitis (fancy term for foot pain) possible Morton's syndrome,  and told me it may require surgery further down the road.   He recommended shots directly into the nerve he felt was affected/effected that would kill the nerve and eliminate the pain and a boot for me to wear.   I had a series of 4-5 shots in the area....threw the boot away as it caused hip problems because it made the leg longer than the other one.  The shots did NOTHING.....so after some computer reading I realized that one of the problems with that foot was neuropathy symptoms which I firmly believe was caused by the statin high cholesterol medication which in my opinion is nothing more that a poison...in what the side effects are.   (swelling, heat, pain, aching. heel, arch and toe pain, the feeling that something had been rammed under my big toenail, blistering, clumsiness, 24 hours per day 7 days per week,  which varied in severity.  Every night I slept with an ice pack, took over the counter pain relievers which simply helped for short periods of time and caused stomach discomfort.  About 2 weeks into taking the CBD....one by one my symptoms disappeared and it seemed as if they disappeared the opposite of the way they came into being.  Now I have just a buzzing feeling in my foot which is uncomfortable and I am confident caused by the shots I was given.  Once in a while for about a minute I have a couple of stabbing pains in the area which last only a second or two, slight swelling with the heat we are encountering (109 today) but I have NO PAIN.... and am finally able to walk flat footed instead of on the side of my foot.  (A massage therapist I went to told me that there was inflammation in the area that was creating the pain........ )

Problem #3.
Having such wonderful results from the oil (which I still take daily and will continue to take) I decided to try the face cream.....  I had a medium sized brown spot on my face that was puffy and although it didn't bother me health wise it did "woman wise".   I have not yet finished my first jar of cream and the brown spot is gone.  It kept getting smaller and smaller and the last remnant just dropped off leaving no scarring.   Another product I will continue to use on a regular basis as it has diminished some of the wrinkles and my skin looks healthier and is soft and supple.

Problem #4.
About a month ago I developed gout in my left big toe which I had experienced a couple of times in the past year.   I added about 8 drops of CBD to my daily regime and put on a smidgin of the pain cream to the area and within 15 minutes the pain disappeared and never returned.  The hotness and swelling continued for about 2 days so I doctored with ice packs, elevation and an over the counter pain medication at night for the aching....no pain....just an ache as the inflammation was being taken care of..... and was back up on my feet again on the 3rd day and I have had any additional problems.

I have become a firm believe of Hempworx CBD products.   I use the oil on scrapes and bruises I get ....andit has become something I use like any one else does a band aid.

I started taking the CBD with 5 drops 2 times per day AM and PM and increased until I began to notice changes somewhere in my body which told me I had reached the amount that was right for me.  You have to strive for body awareness....sometimes the clue that it is working within the body is through detox.  Changes in bowel, changes in your own personal body odor, etc. as the inflammation begins to eliminate from the body.   (My hair was a platinum white color (lol)  and I am getting areas where hair color is returning.  People who have thinning hair are seeing new hair growth in different areas)...  Body awareness is a very important aspect of this product to get maximum benefits.  You are becoming the Dr. of YOUR body, a body you have lived with 24 hours a day 7 days a week and can know it better than any physician that you see for 5-10 minutes in an office call.

I have read testimonial after testimonial from people who have parents with Alzeimer, parents of an autistic child, different body areas of pain,  sleep problems, and the list goes on...

I have turned from a skeptic to a firm believe that this product is miracle....amazing and I am so thankful my sister introduced me to these products.

Not all CBD's are the same and I don't stand behind any brand but the Hempworx because it WORKS....  If you are interested check it out.

Handmade Necklace

I just finished designing this necklace. (and finished a matching bracelet with smaller wood squares for a wedding in a couple of weeks.  My dress is Orange, red, beige and brown and the necklace is the new longer length.

Womans Hunting Necklace

Women hunt too so I designed and made this necklace and bracelet set in honor of them.  Handmade lamp work beads, antique and czech beads, and a real antler tip.  OOAK.

Finished Pour Painting

The top two are flared vases setting with the light showing through to get a better feeling of what these pieces look like when choosing location to place.  The last photo is a long piece of curved glass that was also poured.  I am in love with all 3 pieces and I am looking forward to doing some more either tonight or tomorrow evening.
