This is the first day I have actually felt like doing anything since my knee surgery. I've finally got some meds that are helping with the pain and the attitude. It's interesting that the two go hand in hand; if you have nagging pain all the time it's very hard to have a good attitude. I have an increased admiration for those who live in pain everyday and still manage to be up and positive.
I'm still working on those little mini paintings that are required by our art association. Maybe I can crank some more out while I'm recuperating, it's pretty hard to work large when one leg has to be elevated. One friend suggested that I cover the bed with plastic and just go for it. That just may work. In the meantime here's the second in the series of orchids. I wish the iridescent paint showed up in the photo, it really adds to it.
