Mom & Dad

Larry And Eva by NicksPencil Nick Williams did this amazing drawing of my father and mother, Larry and Eva. I won this in a drawing he had after hitting 50,000 page views. He did such an absolutely amazing job. It was just 2 years ago last month when we lost Mom. Having this on my wall is already making me smile.

Thank you Nick, from my heart.

Fund Raising For Surgery

Journal Entry: Fri Jul 10, 2015, 1:40 AM


Hi, I'm Lori.  Down to basics because I am not feeling well, I have lupus.  If you know anyone who has lupus, I'm sorry.  It's a vicious disease.  I'm disabled and on Medicare alone.  I realize that I haven't been active here in quite a while.  I had a massive flare.  Muscle spasms have been preventing me from drawing which is very depressing.

Anyway, I need to have gastric bypass surgery.  Medicare won't pay it all and I can't have the surgery until I pay at least $2500.00.  I put the fund raising amount at $3,000.00 even though it will be more.  

But that amount will get me into surgery.

If you can help, even $5 or $10 adds up, please see the full story at gofund.me/LoriLife or www.gofundme.com/ and my name is Lori Hill.

Whether you can help or not I ask you to please read this article.  It will help you understand people with lupus and other chronic incurable diseases.  It will take just a couple of minutes to read.

Thanks for reading this and I wish you well.  Take care.

Hello Old Friends, I still exist

Sat Jun 27, 2015, 7:52 PM by Aurora9912:iconaurora9912:
It's been a long time, but since I have been unable to draw due to muscle spasms I found it very difficult to see others doing what I couldn't.

It was painful, maybe especially because I had finally found art again after so many years.  I finally had my tools, felt I was going to find my passion again, only to have it taken away.  I was jealous, and felt guilty for being that way.  So...


It's been a battle.  LUPUS SUCKS!  I'm fighting too many battles at once so my doctor and I decided that I should have gastric bypass surgery to try and resolve the weight issue.  Being on Medicare alone it turns out that the doctor who oversees you after the surgery needs $2500 up front because Medicare doesn't pay it.  Oh, they also leave you with anesthesia, lab, x-ray, and tons of other unpaid bills.

The funny thing?  If I made about $70 per month less it would all be paid 100%!  Yeah, I'm laughing.  I can't get extra assistance because of that $70.  Where does this leave me?

I'm asking for help.  I have started a fund raising campaign at gofund.me/LoriLife and you can read my entire story there.  If you can help, thank you.  Even if you can't I want to thank you for reading this.  If you have Facebook or Twitter could you please SHARE my link?  I'm only asking for $3,000 (only, ha) yet in all honesty I will need more.  Another bridge to cross.  I just want enough to get me into surgery.

I'm not giving up and I will be back.  I will start again.  I wish you all the best, please take care.

Artist | Hobbyist | Traditional Art

An updated bio, finally! OK, it's only been about 9 months since I signed on but it needed changing. My ID pic is a painting by the amazing Olivier Castillon created for me, commissioned by my best friend. I am the troll, he is the bear-it is our story.

I am 51 now, female, happily single for many years. Another edit-I have lupus-it sucks. Took out all of the details, no one wants to read that depressing stuff anyway.

So. That is me at present. I try to deal with this but some things seem to be falling by the wayside. Some friends can't handle either the illness or the changes in me-they either need to get over it or walk out for a while. I can barely deal with this myself-they have to figure out their own problems about this and me.

Really love dA and have met some wonderful and truly talented people here. I get so excited when I find someone new whose art captures me. I will post new stuff when I can. I thank you for sharing your art. Take care! :wave:
