Drink

5 x 7 oil on canvas
I'm doing value studies as I try to get back in the saddle. Recently I'm fascinated with what I've learned about hydration. The theory I heard is that all pain and disease are directly caused by chronic dehydration, and all are reversible without drugs (and with proper supporting diet and exercise). Supposedly after a certain age we don't realize we are thirsty until too late, and cells and related systems close down in order to manage the body's remaining water supply. So I think that after this value study I'll paint a water glass in color. This is our crystal pattern, Kildare by Waterford.

Thanks for the health lesson [grabbing my water bottle now] and the preview of what I think is going to be a gorgeous painting!

This is true. In my 20's I had severe migraines. I was visiting my dad in western NC, and complaining and suffering. He sent me to an old timey mountain doctor who told me to drink more water Consequently, I've been on H2O overload for more than 30 years. While my migraines never disappeared , they were greatly reduced. I attribute it to water. Cheers! Great values on the goblet.

Je lève mon verre pour vous féliciter pour ce dessin. Toutefois avec un peu de vin ce serait mieux!
