I painted it on request for a friend who was kind to me when I was stuck in the house. The leg is in rehab though I am walking with crutches. I have physio and hydrotherapy and hoping that I am getting stronger every day !

My Art Journey

Posted on March 8, 2014 at 10:35pm 1 Comment

I love colour and I am not really a fine detail person! I find that when I start painting, I lose myself in the tones and hues more than the exact size and shape of things. It's true of my thinking style I am a big picture thinker and an ideas person and then I hand the fine detail over to someone else.

I always had a pencil and paper in my hand as a child and used to love sitting on trains and buses looking out of the window and drawing whatever I saw. However, I was not encouraged…

Hello Mairi

Hope you are on the mend and doing some better. Thanks as always for the like on my bluebells painting. I always enjoy painting scenes like this. 

Have a great day, 

John :)

It sounds like you properly banged yourself up Mairi. At least with a brace, you can take it off occasionally.......and there's no problem with itches. After time you'll forget you've got the metalwork, and if all goes well, they can eventually take it all out.

Anyhow, get well soon.

Well, I will say make yourself some golden paste with tumeric , coconut oil and black organic pepper and boil it a little , by adding a little water and make into a not runny mixture but not to thick either, then eat a spoon with water or make it into a tea, and you will soon find all your pain gone and wont even know you had a cast on.  Read An elephant in my kitchen while you rest.  It is a brilliant read and ' A year in the Bush' by James Hendry.  Will keep you in  stitches.. haha.
