Life gives you Lemons


Well I thought is was about time I got off my butt and posted again.

Well as per the Title "When Life gives you Lemons Make Lemonade" well I have certainly had enough Lemons Lately!!!

My son Matthew who has Cystic Fibrosis or (CF) a cronic Lung Disease has just been told he has CF Diabetes,this has been a blow to us all and now we are learning how to look after him and manage both conditions at the same time, and learning how to cope as a family.

My Art has always been my release it helps me so much I did this canvas piece when Matthew came out of Hospital .

SO here is my spin on "WHen Life gives you Lemons make ART"

Enjoy

Chin up Crozza.Its hard for you all I know, but bet your little man will cope beautifully.He has been dealt the hard hand though.
Big squeeze for him.xx
Its great that you can get into some art though. You gotta be able to release somewhere.

Excellent piece this is my fuzzy friend ( dont know where the fuzzy comes from? Do you need to shave your pits ??? lol)

Crozza you and Matthew are "just the same" amazing creative people, creating art when life is chucking you lemons. I know that Matthew is an excellent artist (he has you to inspire him and visa versa). I am a firm believer in yin & yan, life may throw a few cherries your way very soon. Thank goodness you have not lost your creative spirit & heart as we all enjoy seeing your beautiful creations. Thanks for sharing your work with us Croz. Picked up a few things for you here in the US, look out for that courier delivery, next week, it's on its way to the Ratty very soon, love, JVO

Sending you bucket loads of "cope well" and "good health" mojo from over West Crozza...really like your piece and I'm glad you decided to stay with the fork! When I look at it, it reminds me of Sunday roast dinners at my Nan's house where all the family would go every week - about 30+ of us!!! What an effort but we all have great memories of it. This is what your piece says to me...good times ;-)
