I can't sleep...

It's after midnight.  It's rare to find me up this time of night.  I've been putting up with a case of vertigo for a month now and finally decided to follow the directions to cure it which include staying upright for one to three nights after doing the ear turning procedure.  Since I'm not one to fall asleep in a recliner this is going to prove difficult I think.  

I've had the time to visit some blogs and I varnished a large picture that I recently got back from a private show.  I played some computer games and read some lesson notes.....  I'm beginning to think maybe I should stay up later every night.  Unfortunately I'm usually too bushed to do anything worthwhile.  Not that reading (my usual evening pastime) isn't worthwhile, it just doesn't shorten my to do list which always seems to be too long.

I decided to include a picture of my booth a the Art Walk show I was in recently.  Myra had asked me to take some pictures of the event but most of them didn't turn out.  Take note of the awesome high director style chair my sweet husband bought me for the show.  With it I could sit and visit with folks without looking up and then having a wave of vertigo send me for a loop.  It's a great chair.

The first painting I sold is the one I hid down beside my chair because I didn't really like it.  Go figure?!
We were allowed ten paintings in the show.


  1. Congrats on the sale! it's funny that sometimes the painting I don't rate sells and others that are my faves don't!
    Sorry to hear about your vertigo, I experienced something similar recently, really wierd feeling but I think in my case it had more to do with blood circulation. Hope you get rid of that darn vertigo soon.

  2. I am on medication that makes me dizzy and the room spins. I started taking dramamine and it helps! It might make you sleepy--an added bonus for nighttime. Keep up the good work I like seeing your art. The little boy feeding the birds is too cute!

  3. Get better soon Bonnie!
    Glad you did well at the Art Walk!

  4. I couldn't sleep either! Should have emailed you. Just want to encourage you to continue to use your God-given gift of blessing others with your beautiful paintings.

  5. Hope your vertigo subsides soon! Congrats on your sale!

  6. Dear Bonnie,
    When hard to go to sleep, I wake up and do something, telling myself, "Hahahaha, I'll go to sleep "one day" And one-day-no-sleep does not kill me." Certainly, this mantra works in thirty minutes for me.
    But congrats on your show success!! Your booth looks so nice!! Go, Bonnie, go, go!
    Cheers, Sadami

  7. Bonnie...Congratulations on your sale!! Hope you're feeling better. My daughter suffers from Vertigo occasionally so I know what you're going through.
