121irst. Stroke

I am in a strange mood. My tremors make me frustrated everyday. I now have an opportunity to get rid of them, supposedly for good. It is a scary operation done with lasers. And on top of that it is experimental. That's the reason I could afford it. I don't know what to think about the whole thing. I hope you enjoy the blue stroke in today's painting. -Josh

120th. Stroke

This stroke comes from a good mood. I got a new room today. It is a corner room with great windows for my plants which I have a lot of. I like how the tan wraps around the red and orange. I hope you like it too. -Josh

119th. Stroke

Today's color is orange. It blends nicely against the red. I'm not feeling so hot today. I am cycling pretty fast. One minute I am exited and the next I am depressed. I hope your day is going well. -Josh

118th. Stroke

Return of the big red. This could be for the holidays or for the great mood I'm in. I have been doing positive visualization and affirmation work and it seems to pay off. Regardless it's red.

116th. and 117th. combo.

Because of time availability I had to do Thursday's and Friday's strokes at the same time. I think the green and red-orange complement each other. If you think positive you will become positive.

115th. Stroke

This purple stroke goes out to my friend Gail. She hasn't requested it in a while and I thought it looked good against the burnt sienna.

112th. Stroke

The purple stands out nicely against the teal. to me that is a neutral color. I put it because I feel normal today. I feel even. -Josh

Up early today. Exited to see my sister, daughter, Mary and the twins. I hope they have fun. I know I will.

Today I was at the emergency room 9-2:30 getting a CAT scan again. This time on my abdominal. I had sharp pains. They gave me stuff to take and said I should be okay.

Today I am dedicating my stroke to my step dad Glen. He is out working in a swampy area somewhere. So this is to you from my blog to your bog. -Josh

105th. Stroke

Today I used white. I thought it would be a good opposing color to yesterdays black.

104th. Stroke

Today I've made a black stroke. Not because of my mood being bad. Black makes all the happier colors stand out. Without darkness how could we ever truly appreciate the light?

103rd. Stroke

The Dark Blue stroke today represents my frustration w/this project. I am happy to have made it this far and appreciate all the support. I just feel like my routine is off. Things will get better and I will get back to people better. -Josh

98th. Stroke

Today I choose the color red. I find that there needs to be a presents of red. It can be warming as well as mysterious what does red mean to you?

96th. and 97th. Strokes

I did the 96th. yesterday and my camera was missing. I found It today and did the 97th. combining both yellow and orange. Sorry about the inconvenience.

Sometimes through hard times you may notice the things that really matter even more.

I am going to recognize three of these things a day.

I. I was in the hospital over the last couple weeks and they were some of the greatest people.

II. I'm grateful for my camera reappearing.

III. I'm grateful for my family, extended family and my friends.

Thank you, Joshua
