Painted postcards for penpals.
… You never get tired of my yellow flowers.
I goofed. I painted a clear vase filled with water, stems showing. But I took the “water” all the way to the top of the vase. DUH. Haha. Easy fix. Yet another deep blue vase. My favorite choice I know.
This quick little bouquet was a late night session. Ahhh. Relax.
The cold has found us. Brrrr. Forecast says mid 70’s all week, but the nights are mid forties. We have a small chance of rain later this week. Wouldn’t that be grand!
I’m always saying there is so much I want to learn. So much to learn. Always. Well, I learned I’m allergic to amoxicillin. FUN! Not quite.
I have a Plantar’s wart that I have been treating for almost 3 months. The doctor says it is a slow process, but the least painful. Haha. All was well, until a couple of weeks ago. I developed an infection. There was swelling, which equals pain. It was two days before my scheduled appointment, so I just stayed off it best I could. Every now and then there was shooting nerve pain, just to keep me on my toes. Haha.
She numbed my foot, and started to scrape, and open up the “cyst”, and let me tell you THAT was really fun! The numbing was not working, and she had to do what she had to do. I had to sit there and try not to jump out of the seat.
She told me she had never seen this happen before, and I mentioned that it was likely another Lupus anomaly. She agreed.
So I was left with an open wound. Small, but open. I had to change the wrap each day. And take an antibiotic. Ok, done deal.
Ha-Haa! The wound heals fast, no more pain. Last day of the antibiotic and I start itching. The 25th, (brother’s birthday), I just thought it is my clothes scratching. The next day I wake up, red and bumpy, and ITCHY. Chest, neck, cheeks, ears, a 1 by 2-inch patch on one wrist. Took me another day to figure out why. We thought maybe it was the seafood, but that has never happened before. Still, the Lupus factor.
The itch traveled to my back, and my scalp. I could see red patches on my fingers and hands, but they did not itch as much. Eight days later, most of the itching is gone. Thank goodness for Cortisone 10 and a cold compress!
Happiness is having a scratch for every itch.
The September 30-Day Creative Gathering was a hit! Participation was down, but many artists who could not take part daily still contributed to the conversations and camaraderie.
Fourteen to Twenty pieces were posted each day in the daily albums. And roughly 586 pieces of art were created in the group this month. WOW!
Congratulations to all of you! You persevered through Hurricane Laura, California wildfires, health issues, COVID and all of the demands of life in this unusual year. Whether you created on a few days, or all 30, congratulations!
For a tough month, I think I did OK. It was a struggle for me. I created 16 really, really bad pieces of art. Haha. Many days I worked on two or three at a time. To increase the odds of having something decent to share. Haha. And yet, almost half of the art I posted is on my favorites list. How ’bout that?! Some of these will be posted for sale in my Society6 shop soon.
Thanks so much for following along! Your encouragement keeps me going!
You are a blessing!
I will be sharing art from the AMAZING artists in the group this weekend.
See you then!
