Cherries in Bowl

It's so good to be back to painting!  This is my newest one.  
The shiny cherries were so much fun to paint and I just love painting bowl designs.  
I must have been a china decorator in another life.

broken wing

This was the busiest autumn I have ever had.
My daughter and I booked into several art/craft fairs, meaning lots of painting, printing and framing.  I  helped her move into her dream house, a lovely Victorian built in 1891,
and helped pack up to move out of her former home.
My husband and I had a great trip to Maine with dear friends.
And, most wonderful of all, our son got married!

Everything was flying along right on a schedule when I slipped on my stairs while carrying boxes.  Down I went,THE WEEK OF THE WEDDING,and shattered my shoulder blade.

Yes, of course my right shoulder blade.

I made it through the Rehearsal Dinner and the beautiful wedding.

There I am with my trusty sling and my wonderfully helpful husband.

Surgery was the following week.  I now have a plate and screws holding me together.
While I can't paint for quite some time and have a lot of physical therapy ahead of me,
I am very grateful.
It could have been a lot worse.
