I am having some difficulty with my blog. I can not load images from my computer. It has to come from someplace else. ie, dailypainters.com website. I think it has something to do with my "google account", but I am not in the mood right now.
and besides, "this painting is sold"
This house, known as The Stinton Ranch sits in the Alblemarle Sound at the end of Soundside Road in Nag's Head, North Carolina. Pretty much the only house I know that does. For reason's unexplained this house is on the National Historic Registry. The home was demolished in Hurricane Irene. I was sad to hear of its demise. I was puzzled when they decided to rebuild it. I have painted this house before. Since they decided to rebuild it, I decided I should at least make an effort to paint it again. I do not know if the original owner's of the property are living there. This painting was done from a photograph of the original structure, and thus more accurate than what is now constructed at the end of Soundside Road. Good News Everybody. I have renal cancer. I believe it is very curable. I will have surgery soon. I probably won't write about this much more. I don't want me or my painting to be defined by this. I am going to remodel my studio and add some more square footage. I am going to do my best to keep painting through all of this. I will have a new photograph of myself done soon. I might put on a new shirt. Life is wonderful. I am excited about how this ordeal will reinspire passion for improving my skills as a painter. Thank you for your thoughts and prayers. Bon Ton Roulet!

Last week I went to see my doctor. After some tests he told me that I have cancer. I will go next week for more tests and probably an operation out of town. Needless to say I am a bit nervous about this, but I have lived a wonderful life so far. I hope to be painting again soon. I will probably be sporadic with my posts and paintings. I think the worst part of this is my wife was diagnosed with breast cancer in June. She has one more chemotherapy treatment left.
