I'm Baaaack!!! The Final "Rusting Through Retirement"

Well, after 6 days in the hospital and several here at home recouperating from 2 blood clots in my left lung, I am finally back to painting...it has been WAY too long for my taste.  I am doing okay - taking a lot of meds and trying to regain my strength and my breath.
I worked on this painting yesterday and finished it this evening - finally.  Now  I want to frame it tomorrow so I can enter it in a show on Thursday - I'm pushing it pretty close, I know!  Wish me luck!

Carol and Jane:
Thanks for your comments...I am taking very good care of myself - it has been a scary time.

So glad you're back painting and that maybe getting this one done for an imminent show may have taken your mind off the doctors and meds and health scare - painting is such good therapy! Take care of yourself - I want to be enjoying your painting for decades to come!
