“i lost everything. i went to work thinking i was going to come back to my house. and my neighbor called me and told me that my house – that a tornado had just taken it away. that i didn't have anything left. and i'm just numb. i don't know what to say. i'm waiting on insurance people and it's just, it's hard. i don't have a house. no one was home, thank god. when i got here yesterday, this is how it looked – no roof, no front, no back. everything everywhere. i was in this house for about 16 years. i lived here with my husband and my daughter. i'm just tired and i'm aggravated and i haven't had the strength to talk to nobody. i've never been exposed to something like this. you see the people on tv, but until it actually actually really happens to you, it's like – oh my god. but i know god is able to see me through this and to live another day, because i'm living. i will see better days.” #nolabeings#neworleans

Two #podcastrecs : #1 the new york times has a new show called the daily. today's episode recapped yesterday's lawyer-judge conference call discussing donald trump's travel ban executive order and the lawsuits currently preventing its implementation. i feel like i understand where things stand much better now. #2 the new season of sooo many white guys is 🔥💣. i particularly love the banter between @dopequeenpheebs and @joanielee .
This past week i took wyeth and fox for a drive into the desert. i was hoping to paint but wyeth wouldn't stop crying so i ended up nursing him most of the three mile hike into this moon canyon. my desire to paint hasn't lessened any since having a baby but now there is an equally strong desire to spend as much time as i can with wyeth. so i didn't paint that day. but i showed my baby boy a place i love and we watched the moon rise together. and i will paint again soon.
Watercolor on canvas .. artsy friends have you ever used water mixable oils? oils were my favorite in art school but i don't like having to use solvents 🌜i picked up some #schmincke#mediumw yesterday and i'm excited to try it

Photo by @andywcoleman // we came to the tanjung puting national park in indonesian #borneo in search of the iconic orangutan. to thoroughly explore the park, we needed to take a traditional klotok wooden river boat. from our floating lodge, we slowly drifted through the rain forest, keeping an eye out for the abundance of wildlife that congregated near the river. as we watched this orangutan swiftly move through the forest, we were amazed by her strength and agility - plus, just look at that face! despite being a protected national park, much of the primary forest is degraded. the loss of natural habitat is the greatest threat to the orangutan and the other wildlife in this area. @natgeoexpeditions#natgeostaff
