Finally made it into my art room - had the inclination and the ability in this boot (slow going down the stairs but I can do it).  So made up some Christmas/holiday cards.  Some will make the cut this year and some won’t, but at least I’m getting out the paint, pigment and paper after weeks of doing nothing creative.

Used the gold dust dry pigment (Schminke) on his star but it’s so heavy it tilts his head :)

So pleased you are mending and able to get to your workspace. I can't imagine how frustrating that must feel. Healing hugs and best wishes.

Yay! Glad you were able to get back into the studio, and hope your mending continues apace!
Holiday cards are great way to get back into the swinng!

Thanks, Lisa and Laura. It’s good to be back in my little art room and making small things - for now. I’ve done about 7 so far and am running out of the Strathmore blank watercolor cards :). Might have to order another batch.
Still slow going up and down stairs but it’s working and I have to remind myself not to stand for too long on the bad foot. Few more weeks and I should be in rehab to help with the movement/stiffness in the ankle.

Yeah, that star is just too heavy, Jennifer :) ha ha.
