The shoulder/arm are still very painful, so when the doctor's office opens I am planning to give them a call and see if I can get in today. I don't think my doctor works on Mondays, which is a drag, but I don't think I am willing to wait another day to see if I can't get some real relief for this agony.
Some time ago as an exercise in a class through one of my Yahoo! groups, I made a picture of a girl with words. I so loved my silhouette of the girl in my wood art that I decided to use her to do another.
The words are from the poem, "Be the Best of Whatever You Are", by Douglas Malloch from a book I found at a thrift shop. I really like the look of this kind of word art.
I also like the more traditional word art that you can find online sometimes or in craft shops for use in scrapbooking. They are more like this:
I also attempted another bird. I know this comes as no surprise to those of you who "know" me because I really love drawing birds.
He's not my best ever, but I like him. I need to work on the extended wing and I think his tail feathers might be better if they were longer and more tapered. But, for now, he is what he is!
I am also working on a Christmas themed post card swap with a member of a Yahoo! group, but because she may well read this blog, I am not going to show it to you yet, but I will show you the ATC backgrounds that I made by "mopping" up the palette from my Kraft sheet. I am participating in a bird on a background ATC swap through ATCs For All and thought these backgrounds were perfect for that purpose.
And because I never seem to be able to get through a day without making patterns in Photoshop, here are a few more:
I'm off to get another mug of coffee and put something in my stomach so that I can take some Ibuprofen. Then I need a shower and I suppose I'd better give the underarm area a trim if someone is going to be looking closely at my shoulder/arm.
See you tomorrow, hopefully with an answer to why I am hurting so much for so long.
