Hi all.

It has been a while since I last posted anything.

I have had a new very bad word added to my vocabulary


This is even worse than Dratt, botherations and dang.

Ouch comes close though

Such is life in the slow lane. However:-

In the words of Terry Pratchett's Granny Weatherwax, "I ain't ded yet."

Glad to see you haven't archived me yet.

Botherations? LMBO! I love that.

Hi Rusty, Sorry to hear about your arthritis, I hope it isn't too bad. Hang in there.

I'm glad you swung by The Art Colony to say Hi!

Rusty, I have the botheration of arthritis as well. It bothers my removing lids from jars and such. So far it's not affecting my painting because so much of my stuff comprises impasto (i.e., palette knives), and poured and squeezed paint. My feet are another story. Arthritis is indeed a bad, BAD  word.

Well Rusty, Do what you can when you can.  I hope you get some relief and perhaps even remission.  It's tough to have Arthritis and draw or paint like you used to.  I'll keep you in my prayers.  Did you draw your self portrait? It's nice.
