I am not finishing paintings very fast, because I am being very careful with the pain I have in my shoulder and wrist but I try to paint everyday, at least 20 minutes and finished this Frida.
The canvas is 6"x12 and my inspiration was a picture of her in the same position taken on October 16, for that reason I named her "Frida in October"I am also working on a cheater quilt designed by "Cart Before the Horse" and it is a different technique of antiquing, very interesting.
I bought the pattern on ebay. It is a lot of work! You have to stitch all the details, but I love it.
Last week I had a hard time, not so much with pain but with thoughts.
After a very intense playing time with my daughters at the park (climbing up and down the hills, the playground, playing airplane and chasing them) next day I couldn't walk, my legs were so sore!
Somebody told me that at certain age (I am 37) your body start aching more after activities. I don't see myself old, sometimes I even feel like I am in my 20s but after that comment I started to feel old. Even when my sister asked me to send pictures of my new haircut I started focusing on the wrinkles under my eyes instead of my hair.What a waste of time! Worrying about things I cannot change! After a great conversation with my husband (he is sooo good giving advice!) Now I decided to focus on things I can change, like a good and healthy diet, exercises, building good relationships, enjoying my family and loving more.
