Brown and Blue

Posted by Picasa
Sorry about the photograph on this one, will have another go and see what can be done to improve it. However at least you can get some idea of this piece of work. Not sure about the frame on this one, the more I look at it the more I hate it. What do you think?

This week has been a bit of performance, discovered that I have diabetes, and am now getting down to eating the right foods and having more exercise. There really is no excuse for my being in this state, and now I am paying for it. These days we are always eating fast and convenience foods, and if you have a sedentary lifestyle - like I have - you need to alter it before it is too late.

This morning I tested my own blood, it was quite easy really, nice little blood monitor tells you all you need to know about your blood sugar. It struck me that it is not the physical act of doing this, but the things going through my dimwit brain that made me stop and think. I am 47 and up until now I have always thought I had good health. I am overweight and according to the magazines and articles my BMI tells me that I am obese. Now that is a foul word and one which I am about to abolish from my life. This is such a big wake up call, I hope I haven't damaged myself too much eating Florentines at Costa's and muffins at Starbucks. Salad all the way now...

Ivory on Blue

This is my new piece of work, ivory flowers on a mid blue background. My Grandmother had a glass bowl similar to this when I was a girl, she used it on the dining table for celery. It was all very bumpy and lumpy and I used to love to run my fingers over it.
