Today my husband and I went looking for art, stone or something for two 16 by 16 inch spaces at the top of our bar. We found a few things including glass, natural stone and geodes. But we have different ideas of what will work. I want a bright contrasting color like orange or red. He wants green or blue. I like green and blue, but I feel those colors will get lost.
I have a feeling those spaces will remain empty.
It was very hot and humid outside. We walked around our little town of Carefree and then Cave Creek going in and out of consignment stores and art galleries. When I got back home I felt dizzy with vertigo. I have gotten vertigo twice in the past year. Hopefully this time it goes away quickly without having to see the doctor or going on prednisone like the last two times.
I’m sitting in bed typing this and finishing my neighborhood’s newsletter — hoping I don’t fall off!
Have you had vertigo? What has worked for you to get over it? Happy August First!
I get vertigo like feeling if I’m lying completely straight on my back. It goes away after a while.
Thankfully it went away for me. I was so nauseous.
It’s not a good feeling.
I was miserable!
I can understand
I get the occasional issue with vertigo but it’s never been anything long lasting. Very odd to experience the dizziness though, very disorienting. Those niches would look interesting with some folk art from the area/culture. They definitely call out for some bright pops of color!
I was lucky this bout of vertigo only lasted a few hours. Definitely want bright color in those niches.
I have not experienced vertigo but after the acupuncture for my hip I am always asked if I feel dizzy. Not, so far. Feel better. The heat in Tampa is the highest it has been in a hundred years!
I’m wondering if the heat got to me and added to the vertigo. We’ve had very hot and humid days, too. I’m glad the acupuncture helps your hip.
I believe going to the chair yoga helps more. After 2 visits to the acupuncturist, I will wait it out.
Exercise does wonders!
The right kind does; evidently, the heavy pounding of an hour on the step machine was too much for the joints, as was walking on the pavements. Back to work tomorrow. Hopefully, I will continue with yoga once a week in the evening.
Good luck in your new position!
Sounds like some compromise will be needed on the Art.
We have several empty spaces on walls and those niches that have been bare for 18 months!
I think you should get two votes on the artwork, your husband gets one! You win. About the vertigo, I get that on occasion, usually I got up to fast, or I’m dehydrated! Try a glass of water next time. Hugs, C
I like your voting system! Definitely works for me! I was drinking water and eventually I got through it. I think it was going in and out of art galleries in the extreme heat and humidity.
The heat can make you feel both naucous and faint! Stay cool!
You too! Soon we’ll be out of the desert headed for Santa Barbara. Hope it stays cool there!
I’ve had it a few times before, and it’s no fun. I hope you feel better soon. Xoxo
Fortunately it passed after several hours!
I’ve had vertigo…when I figure out the best way to handle it I’ll tell you
I’d appreciate that!
Have you thought of acrylic blocks? I have all kinds of acrylic blocks on my shop. Maybe you will like something. Can you explain exactly what type of thing you want in those spaces?
We are thinking about brightly colored glass art.
How is your vertigo? Did you have to see a doctor? I know I’m behind on reading blogs. It feels like I’m playing catch-up.
My vertigo is better. I saw an ENT. Thanks for catching up 😊
