I hope this isn’t foreshadowing for the rest of 2009.
So where have I been you might ask…oh yanno sick.
After Christmas holidays I started feeling very lethargic.
No energy and no motivation.
So I spent my days off lounging around, reading, sleeping, knitting, watching anime all zero energy activities.
(wait days “off” you say? Yes, days off. I started working part time at the Dow Center ~ironically the same building that has the art gallery that is hosting my work in 2010~ as a Child minding attendant. I essentially help supervise and take care of kids 0-8yrs while their parents go about stuff there ie: the Gym/Fitness Center/Theater/Physio/etc …did I mention it’s a big building?)
Then my lungs started acting up like someone was squeezing them shut, that’s when I dug out my inhalers.
One morning I woke up with cough and assumed I had caught a chest cold.
So I started my cold routine.
I made my ginger honey lemon tea, had foods with lots of garlic and other beneficial herbs and tried to get lots of rest.
But alas 2 weeks later it still hadn’t cleared so come Sunday morning after being up every 2 hours coughing we went to the Hospital to get checked.
They of course, only confirmed what I had already assumed.
I had gotten a bad case of Bronchitis.
Blah, so now I’m doing a week of penicillin with the hopes that it will finally be purged from my system.
Needless to say my creativity’s been a bit low.
But I still managed to pull off 4 paintings in that time.
Today’s piece is “Believe in Me”
It is an 11″ x 15″ watercolor word art commission that I received over the Christmas holidays from an old High School friend back home.
She selected the words and requested it be done with a father, son and pregnant mother as she is soon expecting her second child.
Well that’s it for today.
Check in tomorrow when I’ll be posting 1 of 2 completely abstract paitings.
