|Earth Quilt 36" x 36" oil on canvas|
This is the last painting I did before we lost Adam. Since then I haven't put brush to canvas. I was ready to finally try it a couple of weeks ago when I wiped out on my bike, riding fast downhill on a rainy day. I broke my right hip (first point of contact), right elbow and bike helmet! Thankfully I was also wearing the padded cycling gloves Adam gave me for Christmas. I'm feeling pretty good 11 days post-surgery, but mending bones is an infuriatingly slow process. After I'm done with this latest drama I wonder how it all will affect my creative process. But for now I'm happy to just wake up in one piece (both physically and emotionally) every day!
