"Le Migrane"

Today it thunderstormed.  I get sinus/migraines whenever there are violent thunderstorms.  Lucky me!  I am a human barometer.  Whenever there is an atmospheric pressure change for a thunderstorm, my sinus cavities and surrounding nerves are squeezed, resulting in blurred vision, nausea, and severe pain.  I am in the practice of loading up on motrin and rubbing my face with peppermint oil (over my sinus cavities) whenever a storm is approaching ( I feel the pressure a day before the storm hits).  This eased the pain of the migraine, however I am always left with the nausea and blurred vision.  Enough of the explanation of my headaches and weather.  This is an oil painting of my headache today.  The red is the flame of my inflamed nerves  growing if I don’t take pain medicine in time.  The blue is the extinguishing effect of the ibuprofen dulling the headache.  The yellow is the partially extinguished migraine.

TGIF!!!!  I really dont have anything TGIF to paint about, so I will paint about something that is still on my mind from yesterday.  I went to the farmers market during lunch because I really wanted some fresh strawberries.  As I was coming back from the farmers market, there was a homeless man with poor posture with a sign saying that he didn’t want food, and that he only wanted money.  I gave him a strawberry.  Perhaps I should have given him more that one strawberry, but oh well that’s what I gave him.  This is an oil painting on a 4″x2″ canvas.  The background are blurred red, blue, grey, and black geometric shapes with a white sillouette of the homeless guy in 3 slumped poses  reaching out for a strawberry.
