I'm Back!!!I can't believe it has been almost a year since last posting, but it has been a difficult year. My husband Tom has been in the hospital most of that time, beginning last October with emergency gallbladder surgery and a subsequent heart attack. Then he went for emergency open heart the week of Christmas and then another admittance in February for pneumonia and COPD exacerbation. The stress took a toll on me and our family and I certainly lost my creative drive. So Tom is on the road to recovery, thanks to cardiac rehab 3x a week, and I am trying to get my art gene to return. A trip to Artiscape recently in Columbus helped, as I took a great class by Wanda Montgomery on techniques. Also just being with good friends and a change of scenery!
I have also joined a few art swaps that are vintage in nature and using antique images. My CDV photos (carte de visite) above will be made into a book by the hostess, after swapping. Some are dimensional, as the real dog tag on the first one. I have found that small art projects are very soothing for my spirit and hope it is strengthened by continuing to make 'for others.'~Lou
