Hello again. I have a lot to be thankful for. As you may know. I recently had  a Vitrectomy in my right eye to repair a macular hole. I had lost most of the sight in left eye about  15 years ago due to a macular hole ,that even with surgery, could not be repaired,

 I am happy to report that the hole was repaired, and I shouldn't lose any more of my sight.  However, I do not see nearly as well as I did when I started painting last January.

But I am truly thankful for saving what I have and grateful that the ordeal is over. I'm trying to get started painting again. I did a little mixed media floral painting yesterday, just to get my feet wet.

I wish you all a Happy Thanksgiving. I have a wonderful life and intend to live it to the fullest. I hope you do the same.

Fantastic news Ronnie!! Have you ever tried using your sight difference in painting? I often wondered if Monet had astigmatism, the left side was never as clear as his right probably due to the non dominant eye viewing his subject.

Ronnie, I am so pleased the surgery was a success and that you are well again, and I am very pleased that you have been able to return to painting. All the best
