Working with pain

10" x 18" wood cut fern.

10″ x 18″ wood cut fern.

Thursday hasn’t been particularly fun. I spent most of last night tossing and turning due to sciatic nerve pain. When I got up, the pain continued. I tried to take it easy, laying low, but that doesn’t make it better. So I decided to work on a couple of items for the garden sale on Saturday.
Wednesday night I queried my good friend, a major garden enthusiast, about the new design and possible color choices. She gladly put forward some excellent ideas and I’ll hopefully have a couple of new items for sale during the event.

The Cozy Rose Art Sale and Open Garden in Brownsville! Yes, I’ll really be there with botanically inspired art. A portion of ALL sales goes to help The Arts Center At-Risk Youth Education Program. So come help a great cause and fill your gardens and home with fun art! img_2754 All the remaining boxes arrived today! 12 total and ready to receive cutting, once I get my designs figured out.

That’s all for today. Hopefully I’ll share the finished garden goodies tomorrow.

      Thanks Rosie. I’m actually doing quite well today. I just never know…

        People don’t realise how physically demanding art is

        Oh so true!

        7 hours on my feet in the print studio is like working in a factory on a production line.

        Your poor feet, legs and back! I hope you have good mats or something to stand on rather than cement floors!

        No, never occurred to me. It’s a thought 🙂

      Things are getting better. Hopefully this trend will continue!
