A Piece Of Me...
I was born in the second half of the 1900’s. I am mostly of Scottish descent, tetched with some Megalomania, am decidedly Hetro, Numerologically a 3, Astrologically A Capricorn, abstractually 2 +4 according to the Enneagram and Spiritually Empathic! I have no religious affiliation, I do Believe, I am registered as an Independent, I am an Award Winning Artist, an Artisan, Writer, Hobby Herbalist, Oracle Consultant, a Grandmother and a Wife.
Most of my time, these days, is spent dealing with a semi-bizarre condition, "Arachnoiditis w/Myoclonic Dystonia"! Such is life after a fairly severe (ACDF C4-7) spinal incident. I am so grateful to no longer be paralyzed after successful surgery, that I try not to whine about the “Chump Change”! I’m sure any Quadriplegic out there would gladly accept the sacrifice for the freedom of Mobility!

An Example would be that every single day I am "Thinking" about my Blog, but SELDOM, (If EVER) actually sit down and say a line! However, I did notice that I seem to have Plenty of time to FaceBook! :o
So, As of TODAY... I am Vowing to Blog First! :) I am Actually really working towards a "VLOG" and am REALLY trying to figure it out!
I will hopefully get a link page soon up at the www.brokeneckstudio.com for the start of my Webshow ICEDview! So, hopefully, if I start heading my Positive Energies in THAT direction, instead of spending so much time on 'Other" stuff...Hmm.... Well! :)

Anyhoo...We didn't get started until almost 7, so we went straight over to the Gallery 833, which is always our "kick off" point for Hopping, then we work our way back across town! As always, Dennis Halkides and his Gracious family had a Wonderful Show in full swing! The guest Artist was very sweet and had some very nice pieces, but the "833" moment of the night for me, I have to say, was a new picture in his Gallery of the Jewish Cemetery in Prague, as he told me the story, it took my breath away! What a powerful image, very haunting and memorable... I also want to comment on what a spectacular table of Tid-Bits they had, I especially Loved the pickled Asparagus!!! Oh Yum!! I still miss Ann & Jeanette, I was thinking of them...I swear... :)
Since we lingered too long at 833, we made a mad dash for the Vintage and could barely squeeze through, in fact we didn't, I plan on going in next week to see the Artwork! What to say, they remain a staggering favorite on the course!
We were bent on making it to the "Empty Lot" event at the Corner of Market &amp; Shasta Streets, put on by a WHOLE lot of People... Ashley Wagar, Tyler Faires, Ben George, Mike Cruz, Brent Van Auken, Wesley Jensen, Sheena Rae George, C.d. Tomcat, Emily Applekamp, Amanda Honeycutt and I have to say IT ROCKED!! I met lots of People and Artists that I only knew on Facebook, like "The Good Stuff Girl", "Dark Pony Designs" and more! Thank youze Guyze, I hope you do it again!!
Then, walking on the rocks gave me multiple Herky-Jerkys and I had to leave...
We still had a blast and I can't wait till the next!! :)

I have several new canvases I want to start working soon as well as I am putting up new canvases soon! I will be doing new canvases next week, while I still have enough heat and sun to "Cure" them! So I will be hoping for and looking forward to doing yet another show soon!! :)
I made a "Antipasto Pasta Salad" that grew and grew like a stone soup that ended up big enough to serve a small army though, so even with my Great turnout, I took Plenty Home!!

I have definitely been taking my physical limitations to new measure! My G-Kids think I should do a video of me painting while having a Herky-Jerky! Although, I do not technically Paint While I am having one, I always stop...it would be a (funny?) interesting video! :) I wonder what kind of music I could put that to? Hmmm... imjstkidding...noreally...
