It is a bit hard!

It is a bit hard having one leg in a rigid splint, it has somewhat has clipped my wings so to speak! After my fall in Bali last week and the xray finding a fracture of the left patella, I have to endure 6 weeks in a rigid splint and no driving! I have to have the seat back so far just to get my leg in the car, cannot reach the pedals to drive. So have to rely on my husband to take me places.

I did get to see my grandson win his grade 1 running race this morning and duly photographed, everyone else was at work. It is a wet day here, which is pretty rare for us, driest winter for a long long time, they sent the junior classes back to school as they were getting very damp and cold, so I was able to ring my husband and ask him to come and pick me up and come home again.

Off to have another xray this afternoon to check and see there is no further movement, if one can be lucky I am in that there is very little displacement and hopefully after 6 weeks of wearing the splint it will all be healed again and we can go to China October 12. Time is going to tell on that one.

Back into painting

I have nearly finished my commission of two rose paintings and will photograph and put online later today, soon as I am satisfied they are finished.

Got to keep the brushes flowing for the upcoming Watercolour Society Annual Awards in early October.

This week we are going to Bali for four nights so that will cut my time back.

Morning painting

Off to painting group this morning, I am working on a commission, of roses two paintings for a bedroom. One done and second one on the way.

I didn't get any sales at Belmont, so my paintings came home again. Next week I take three paintings to the Cystic Fibrosis Exhibition at Nedlands and have several more exhibitions in mind with the Watercolour Society Annual Awards in early October looming. Have to keep busy with the paint brushes.
