A Painting For Mom

A couple of weeks ago, I posted that Beep and I were exploring the work of Gustav Klimt, Austrian symbolist painter, (Tree Of Life) and Vasily Kandinsky, Russian abstract painter and art theorist, (Concentric Circles). Circa 1900.

Great works of art like the aforementioned, are not meant to be copied, but are drawn upon for inspiration, and interpretation.
This is the result of Beep's study of those paintings. Her interpretation is fresh and fun!

In Black And White

It can happen all of a sudden..... Blurred vision, loss of color vision, pain when you move your eye(s), trouble seeing to the side, a hole in the center of your vision, flashing lights, and blindness in rare cases.

It’s a common condition of relapsing/remitting multiple sclerosis called optic neuritis

If you have MS, heat can make optic neuritis symptoms flare up -- usually after a hot shower, exercise, fever, a bout of the flu, or the weather. We are having record heat temperatures here, days of 35C-43C, that's 95F-109F, and my optic neuritis has flared.

For those who follow my blog, you know, I have started painting again, as well as mentoring my granddaughter Beep. So....I was really  pissed off upset last week when the optic neuritis reared it's ugly head. But, I am not going to let multiple sclerosis beat me!

I decided to paint in black and white, with shades of grey.

The world still looks beautiful to me.
Beep loves this one, and wants to paint one just like it!
Stay tuned to see her creation.
