When people think of death the first thought in their head is usually "RUN!"
I decided to do paintings of heaven and hell this week. A few people in my life have gotten sick needed emergency surgery or died in the past couple weeks. It's made me contemplate my own mortality. My paintings of heaven and hell aren't the traditional flames and fluffy clouds. They say a little more about how I feel about each concept.

Latte, the rat, has passed on. She died of cancer at the ripe old age of three. I guess rats typically live three to four years so she had a good run. I thought my bunny angel painting was the most appropriate for the occasion. I'm going to try and do at least three paintings per week. This is my second for this week.

A few girls captured by the waves.
The waves in Lake Michigan were incredible last week. We spent most of thurseday body surfing and playing in them. It was also my first experiance with rip tide. The water wasn't very deep so I could stand but the current was so strong it pulled me along anyway. I wasn't scary because I could just walk out of it but I can see how in deeper water or if I were a small child how it could be quite dangerous.
