Jack and Sally love

I'm quite smitten with this new painting. I guess mainly because I ADORE the creations of Tim Burton. (this is actually where the name "Tim's Sally" originated) Its a little different than what I normally do. the only texture being that of acrylic paint :-)

I'm keeping this post short........I've been having these recurring headaches almost on a daily basis for about 3 weeks now. I can't for the life of me figure out what's going on. They aren't migrains.....just enough pain to be annoying really. I had been taking ibuprofen with no help and I read online that continual usage of ibuprofen can actually be a cause. So I stopped that a week ago. I'm trying to drink more water.
....................but if any of you have suggestions or tricks to stop headaches, lay them on me. I'm ready to do anything.

I can't believe that I didn't twig on to the tim's sally name being a tim burton dumb am I? lol!!
Such a sweet painting, I love how you did them totally in your style.

I hope your headaches get better soon, I had a recurring headache that lasted just over a week I figured out it was the cup of hot chocolate I was drinking at night that was causing it, as soon as I stopped drinking it they went away!...maybe I should stick to red wine instead ;)

oh Mindy...i love this painting!!!!

i am so sorry about your you drink caffeine and if so, have you cut back?? sometimes that is a big trigger.

i was going to suggest drinking more water since headaches can be brought on by dehydration. or what if you do like advil first and then 4 hours later switch to tylenol???

i also agree with Micki...a nice glass of red wine at night could be of help!!

sending love and wishes for a headache free day!!

this is so gorgeous, i can't believe i've only just found you... i love your work.

sorry about your headaches, i have exactly the same type of headaches/migraine - so much pain and nothing worked - i think it's monosodium Glutamate (MSG) poisoning, it has about 15 different names and it's difficult to cut out completely, but the "yeast Extract" version is a real problem for me. I'm feel a lot better these days.

Oh my How are you feeling today sweets. I hope you are okay. If it continues please do go to the doctor to have that checked out. Drink lots of water and herbal tea.

I love this adorable piece!!! And I'm in love with Tim Burton's well.

Night night!
Thanks for visiting me!

I love the new painting! So cool.

I'm so sorry to hear about your headaches, and I hope you can figure out the cause and start feeling better soon. I used to get headaches all the time from sinus pressure - could it be seasonal allergies? Even if you aren't sneezing, there could be some build up there or something. I don't know! I also agree with the previous poster who said to cut down on caffeine and drink lots of water. Hope that helps. :)

Mindy, sorry to hear about your headaches. Wisdom teeth? That was the cause of some of my horrible headaches. I love your work.
