Just to update everyone on the homeward front... I still am fighting the pneumonia. Today is my last day of antibiotic #2 and energy wise I have been feeling really good today. I was even able to talk to my girlfriend on the phone without having to stop to take extra breaths every few seconds! The antibiotic is really hard on the stomach though... but I take my last one before bed tonight ~ YAY! I am hoping to be out of bed by this coming weekend as I know I have to take it slow so that I don't get sick again. I have a question for anyone out there that knows anything about Pneumonia... can it ever be a hereditary illness??? My mom was telling me that my dad used to get Pneumonia all the time and was told by doctors that he should move to a drier climate... so just meditating on that one as I seem to have a tendency towards respiratory infections.
Onward to what I have been working on...
#1 The Dutchess: I think this page is finished but I am thinking of adding color to her dress? Maybe using some H20's... the problem with that is that I drew her in my sketchbook and not on watercolor paper... or I might leave her the way she is.
What do you think?
#2 Lady with The Blue Border: I have been stuck on this piece for days... She originally had short hair but her face was too big so I made the face smaller and glued her onto another page... Now I don't like how brown her hair is... I added a few pink flowers to her hair though I am thinking I need to add more texture to it. I am also not sure what to do around her...
#3 Doodled High heel Shoe: I finished this one off from the ones I posted last week.
#4 Butterflies, Butterflies...: On one of these 'very boring' days I have been sitting in bed I began to draw some butterflies and it just progressed into a whole bunch of different butterflies. Now I am not sure what to do with them. Any suggestions?
#5 New Fairy: I am not quite finished this one. I still have to work on the background and add some finishing touches to the fairy itself. I added some doodling to her face and I don't really like it now and want to rub it out and draw it again... Am I being too much of a perfectionist?
#6 All Over The Place: Laying here has made my mind go all over the place with ideas and colors but I have too much on my brain right now! I drew this one and kept drawing shapes overtop of shapes and in rows etc. I am thinking of calling it "Creation" I am not satisfied with it.
That being said... I am not satisfied with much of my art these days and I'm thinking it has to do with "cabin-fever". I have been in bed too darn long! LOL. So, am I going crazy or can I work with any of these pictures? Should I put them aside until I'm feeling better before I really make a mess of things?
If you have any opinions on the above projects I would certainly appreciate hearing from you.
Thank you to everyone for all your thoughts and prayers these past few weeks. I am sure I will be feeling better really soon!
Hugs and happy creating everyone!
