Embracing My Inner Cold...

Life Book 2014 Week 39 led by Alena Hennessy.  We are to create a journal page painting on paper and dry media.

I'm NOT naming names, but there was a man sitting in front of me on the airplane home who generously spread his germs around by sneezing, coughing (without covering his mouth!!) and touching everything - ugh.  Richard and I are both sick with colds.  I feel lousy, but my cure is to keep going, drink lots of liquids (wine IS a liquid), exercise and work in my studio.  Something good always comes out of the bad.

Hope the colds go soon and you both feel better. In the meanwhile, yes drink Wine, it may not cure but you won't care, lol. Love your photos of your painting and the techniques you used.

I love (and envy) your art work... I've always wished I had artistic talent!

Thanks for sharing at http://image-in-ing.blogspot.com/2014/09/stop-or-else.html.

Feel better quickly!

I LOVE your page and I especially love your showing all the steps to it. Those colors just make me smile.

Wish they could do the same to you and take away your nasty cold. Good wishes for a quick recovery!

They say second time is a charm... I tried posting a comment earlier and it froze my computer :(...

I was just saying that airplanes are considered a high place to transmit colds and other virus, I am sorry to hear that you got a cold, keep doing what you are doing and you will soon both be well.

Oh and by the way this is an excellent way of embracing your inner cold :)

Get well !!!

Hope you feel better soon.

You are far more creative when you feel crappy - perhaps I should try wine next time I catch that airplane bug (cause I nearly always do).

Love this - not the 'ugh, I feel like crap' - but the art. ... and the wine suggestion.

:)

Oh my gosh, this is wonderful. And made me laugh as my husband always says wine counts towards his 8 glasses of liquid a day :) Loved what you created. Should go on a get well card!

Oh no! So sorry you got a cold from a bad traveler! Hoe it passes quickly and you feel well soon.

The piece is so colorful and gorgeous!

Oh no! I'm so sorry and now paranoid. LOL. I'm flying long distance next week and hope not to experience the same. I hope you recover quickly. Love the artwork!
