A sad post, with hope....

My commitment to the painting challenge has changed a bit but I will hop on board as I can.

You see, the day that I signed on, my husband died unexpectedly and suddenly. I signed on totally oblivious to the reality of life....that my world could turn upside down in a second. Needless to say, the past two weeks have been a blur and very sad time.

I am going to continue with the September 30 Paintings in 30 Days as I am able, and to dedicate this to Mark, my biggest fan, and use painting in my healing. I feel good about that. It's one thing, as many know, that can take us out of our left brain, logical, sometimes tormenting side and bring us love, enjoyment and light. Edit: no, could not continue with the challenge. Grieving my spouse is a challenge that is indescribably and horrible and heartbreaking. It will never end, really, just possibly change over time for this man affected my life in immeasurable ways.

Mark Robbin, MD, a man who dedicated his life to giving to others, healing the sick, and to loving me. I love you so much.

My Mark, My Love
