A Diagnosis at Last

Gel printing and stenciled butterflies to help my Rainbowitis

I have a diagnosis at long last that explains the symptoms I have been experiencing. I had spent years trying to unravel the mystery of what was going on, but it wasn’t until recently that a doctor finally found the one thing that makes sense.

The irritability, the agitation, the anxiety, the increased blood pressure, and the inability to focus all have one cause: being away from the rainbow for too long.  I have Rainbowitis.

Dr. Roy G. Biv is the nations leading researcher on the causes and treatment of Rainbowitis.  According to Dr. Biv, the only effective treatment is high doses of color and play.  Daily is recommended and I want to keep the symptoms of this disorder under control.

With a case as advanced as mine we are not looking at cures, but managing the symptoms.  Therapeutic tools, like paint, stencils and gel plates can lead to increased play and instant relief from the symptoms of Rainbowitis.

I take my health seriously and I follow Dr. Biv’s strict regimen of color and play, like I did with this stenciled Gel Press print.

    Aha! So glad you finally arrived at a plausible diagnosis. Hope the remedial treatment works a dream as I usually find any form of colour play makes life a whole lot more fun!

    Wonderful-Can we claim our “medicines” on our insurance-it sure could help the budget. ?

    Oh gosh you had me really worried at the start of that, hope the treatment really works out.

    Now I know what is the matter with me. Rainbowitis! While others around me are using neutral or earth colours in their life I am happily using ‘brights” in quilts, art quilts, mixed media, weaving, clothing and home decor. I am one very happy Rainbowitis sufferer. Thank you for providing this diagnosis

    I LOVE LOVE LOVE this one – am really surprised that I like it since it features butterflies, which I’m really tired of, but you did this in such a way that it is bold but quietly beautiful – May I copy it ?? Love the way you work and am using the Geli plate to make paper for pages in my junk journals – thanks so much for just being you. AND YES color keeps us all alive and well !!! thank you for finally putting a name to this disease !!!!
