February



Sorry I've been MIA for so long. Having lung issues again among other things this winter and I haven't felt at all creative. I'm so tired of opening my blog to see the New Years clipart so I'm posting a couple colored pencil portraits I did about 6-7 years ago. I was asked to join a 5 day challenge on Facebook recently so I dug these out of some old files to honor that challenge. The goal was to post 3 pieces of artwork every day for 5 days. Each day another artist had to be named to do same and so on. It caught on and produced a steady stream of fabulous work in the FB newsfeed which is still running! I enjoyed participating and got to discover some talent I may never have otherwise.

So sorry to read you've not been well.

Thanks, Pat. I'd love to get back at the easel, too. I'm improving but it's taking time. I hate being sick. :(

Just not fair to have to endure winter AND bad health at the same time. I hope you start feeling better really soon. Glad you managed to join in on the challenge: nice that it didn't involve doing NEW work!

It's not fair to have to tolerate winter AND suffer bad health at the same time. Especially when I know you'd like to feel like an artist again. I'm glad you were able to participate in the challenge: wasn't it nice to have something that allowed us to wallow in our past successes?

I couldn't agree more. I dislike winter to begin with and now that it's effecting my health it makes me dread it. I'm so tired of feeling crappy and I miss feeling creative so much. I will admit, it was fun to look back on past projects.

Thank you, Cecile. :) I have used vinegar as a tonic many years ago. Maybe it's time to give it another go, huh?
