So why am I talking about this? Well during this time my husband valiantly tried to keep up with housework, cooking and taking care of me. A lot of things fell to the wayside. This brings me to my current pedestrian life. Although pain free I can no longer ignore and am actually excited about housework and repairs. Just finished painting the dining room and am on to the kitchen and family room.
In the meantime I did a drawing of my husband using a tutorial on The Empty Easel site. I was pleasantly surprised that it turned out as well as it did and ecstatic that I sat down and did it. I will post it once I can get to the scanner.
Thank you all for sharing your thoughts about your lives and art. I feel less lonely than when I started. You've opened my world to many resources and given me the courage to paint and share.
