starry nights
on real paper...with triangle shaped crayons between my ring finger and middle finger (right handed), my first post accident attempt.  it looks a bit sketchy to me.  ha, ha! i overpainted with dilute watercolor. it took a couple of days to complete- but it's a start.
this is also inspired by google art project.  i have been browsing the museums in my spare time.  van gogh, always a favorite.  i love that you can zoom in so close to the paintings, and see the brushstrokes. i miss being able to drive. i am happy that i can make coffee by myself-unassisted.  i am adapting.

well... i was sketching--a new fabric line, but i can't post that. it is unlikely that i will post at all this month.  setback.
bike crash. too fast around a corner.  this is after the er.  i won't show the before.  the right hand looks good, just soft tissue damage. i can't write or open jars.  missing the use of that wonderful opposable thumb.  i am learning new ways of doing things, but can't drive yet. grateful, so grateful to be able to walk, and no head injury. yeah for helmets, the kindness of strangers (who scooped me up and rushed me to the er), and pain meds. road rash is not for sissies, and i feel like a big one. bleahhh.
