This is my most recent finished piece. I started it before I become very ill and physically disabled (I don't care to get into all the details of my health). I didn't know if I'd ever be able to do any artwork again because of the physical challenges. It's been a slow process, but my health has improved a bit. I am able to do some painting now (on "good" days) , though it's a slow process as I am limited to how much I can do in a day and I have to stop frequently to lie down. Even though I'm not able to put in the long hours of painting I did in the past I am thrilled to be able to paint again. Anyway...this painting I started before I became too ill to paint. I never knew if it would get finished or if I'd paint again at all. Normally there's a sort of "high" that goes with finishing a piece, but this one was extra special. It felt like a sort of victory...a triumph over illness/disability. I'm happy to report that I've started another painting. It will be my first painting done from start to finish since become ill. It will also be a special one. Thanks for looking!!
(forgive my poor photography skills! this piece is very bright in real life and the colors are very rich)
