*My Crows* *My Art* *My Way*

Hi Everyone
Hope you're all well!

So many times, when I explain to people how I take the time to go around blog land, to comment and see how everyone is doing, "I get weird looks". Basically saying, why are you wasting your time, they aren't "real" friends. I stick out my tongue to those people, in a loving sexy way! LOL!

I've made so many friends through blog land. People who have been there for me! Supported me with my art. We have laughed together and cried together!

I try to be as real as I can on here. Because, I know we all go through things and if I can help, that makes my heart smile!

Sometimes, you don't know how much you have helped or inspired another life, until you are told.

Last week I received a special gift in the mail. From Magaly 💝
Magaly is an amazing writer. She sent me a wonderful poem, that she hand stitched on paper.

"I am an irrepressible Wild Woman"

We fight, Fate and I,
while she's plucking words
that say she wants mad art
screaming at life:

"Be words of embryonic blood,
hurricane laughter in tradition's walls.
Be raw fearlessness."

I stretch my spine, bare
my teeth, give what pleases her
and me - I am an irrepressible
Wild Woman.
By: Magaly Guerrero

She also sent with it, a beautiful crow card.
Inside the card, it reads,
My Sweet Stacy
I've sent you a poem that was inspired by pain, defiance and self-love. Since you were the one who inspired me to turn my physical pain into visual art, I thought you should have one of the first three pieces I stitched.

Magaly deals with horrible pain everyday. Sometimes, the pain is so bad, she lays down on the cold tiles of her bathroom floor. (When she wrote about that one day on her blog, I started to cry, because when I was very ill, that is where I found comfort.)

Magaly knows, like many of you, my art was "born", from me being ill. Now this is how Magaly's art has began. To know I inspired this, I can't even explain in words how I feel!

To all of you! I am so grateful for you! Keep being you!! My blogging family is very special to me!!! 

Now, do you remember this?? (click on the pics to make them bigger)
Thanks for your votes! I kept it vertical! Here is the finished painting.
"On The Wings Of Spirit We Fly" (10" x 20")

Hi Everyone!
Hope you're well!

I'm excited to show you a painting I've been working on!
I'm now at the finishing stages. Just have to add my heart. My question to you all is, which direction appeals to you more? Horizontal or vertical? I know which one I prefer, but I would like to know, what you think? The painting is 10" x 20".
Big Hugs 😀

Hi Everyone!
Hope you're all well 😀
For me, everything is still going "ok". I have a feeling this is going to be a long process. I'm going to take this all one day at a time and keep on smiling 😊 Thank you for your kind words in my last post. Unfortunately, I will be still late coming around to your blogs, but I will be there!

I did manage to finish a painting. It's 8" x 8" on canvas.
"She Who Guards The Threshold"
I have to show you something, that made me smile. I know many of you love summer, but Autumn and Winter are my favs. So, when I found these 3 leaves, it warmed my heart.
Counting down the days till Autumn! LOL!
Big Hugs
Talk Soon!

Hi Everyone!
Hope you're all well!
I just wanted to let you know, Friday morning, we had a family emergency. Everything is "ok" for now, but time will tell!
This has nothing to do with my mom, so please don't worry!
I just had to let you know, because I am way behind in reading your blogs! I promise I'll be around soon!

Before I go, I want to wish Canada, a happy belated 150th birthday!! (July 1st)
And, for my American friends, Happy 4th of July!
Big Hugs!
