Nightmare Challenge

Atlanta went from drought in 2008 to flooding this year. Almost everyone is experiencing some sort of water problem. I feel fortunate to have only a flooded basement, some folks lost everything. For me it is the second time in the past week. To add misery to it, we lost our power all night. I did not sleep much worrying about the food in the refrigerator/freezer and not being able to wet-vac the water. Yesterday, during a rain break, I made some gutter and concrete repairs, but we still have water running in so it is coming from some other place. I know that I am not up to doing this anymore. I wonder if I will ever get back to painting in my studio instead of cleaning up mold and water. It is really a mess again!
I want to thank those of you who emailed me and commented on the Java Sunrise. Although no one sent an image to post,Layers , Leslie Avon Miller and Blue Sky Dreaming had interesting comments about their collages along with the insights of van Dyck. Check their comments and wonderful sites, you will not be disappointed and think sunshine for those of us who need it.Thank you!


  1. I am sorry to here that you have had problems with flooding.

    Many years ago, the home we live in now was flooded because the run off at the end of the street became clogged. The entire sub-floor needed to be replaced so we did all tiles.

    I guess everyone one appears stalled and have finished artwork continues to inger about as we contemplate our next move.

    As your post title so well sums up, you are facing a 'Nightmare Challenge' and we can only hope that before to long that things will settle back to a normal routine.

    Thank you for your kind words and acknowledgment.

    Wishing you all the very best

  2. I am so sorry to hear about your flooding problems--- of course you can't paint or create with so many problems-- I hope it all clears up soon and you are back in your studio.

  3. Oh Eva I am so sorry to hear of your flooding problems. We had our basement flood once in Ottawa however we were on hand and were able to clean it up with a shop vac before it did any damage. I really feel for you especially as you have been dealing with mould in your studio already.

  4. I appreciate everyone's concerns for our plight here in GA. They are calling for more rain,starting today through Sunday. we are putting any dry pads we can fine to create some sort of barrier around the water entries. My postings and replies will be on hold.


Thank you for taking the time to comment.Your comments are important to me.
