January 24,2018- mention several months ago, that i closed storage. could not afford close to two hundred US dollars a month. beentoo hard. placed art work and other things there .. supposedly a better place then the one before that.. no break ins either, good secured.. and was at first.. wanted art to be protected and provide space at home same time. when i picked up my precious stuff- which was in boxes, wrapped .. or nicely around walls.. much was full of dust dirt.. mildew.. mouse droppings.. dead mice.. hole in roof corner and heart sank.. saved what i could. lack of strength to look again at my works and confront the heart ache again, kept me from going through them.. well. today i started. think.. this oil painting, on wood veneer, unfinished, will be my first attempt to claim back- truly claim back my hurt creations.. will do what i need to, to make each just right fortomorrows..
