|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 thought I might try it a couple of weeks ago, then 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. For now I'm happy to just wake up in one piece every day.
