Well it has been a long time, hasn’t it?
It’s been a helluva year, but it’s almost over now, and with the end of the year, I have reason to hope that the “hell” part is over too. My husband’s many months of dealing with lymphoma and chemo are done and a mystery-mass in his lung remains to be diagnosed with certainty, but he’s doing really well and we are very hopeful.
I have been painting (mostly therapeutic) but not sharing until very recently. I’ve been slapping acrylic paint down on canvas, avoiding the dust of my beloved soft pastels (I’ll return to them as soon as I can. They are calling me!) and not taking them or myself too seriously.
Here is one from a few weeks ago, titled “Polonius”. I like it because it’s playful (but it also references (a bit obliquely) Shakespeare’s play “Hamlet”.
I hope to be back soon with more paintings.
Thanks for sticking around.
