I've been kind of out of touch for the last few days. I've been really ill. Back and forth to the doctor, running a high fever, in lots of pain and generally feeling all blah.....
Well, hopefully the fever has finally broken. I've been fever free for about 6 hours now. I see the doctor again tomorrow to check it out. The worse part is that I have been off work and this is one of the busiest times of our year. The start of a new quarter at the University and students are in a real panic trying to get admitted.
I've felt so bad that I haven't even cared that I am unable to work. That says a lot for me, since I am a person who feels badly if I cannot do my part in my job.
Between sleeping and eating, I had a few hours of creativity and have taken as much advantage of it as I can. I finished a few ATCs, came up with a few ideas for some more and am doing a little journaling in my paper gluebook.
Here's a picture of an experiment in background making with some pigment ink, a few stamps and some "Pearl Powder". I like how it turned out. It is even more interesting I think because I used "suede" paper. It really looks like fabric.
I call this one "Humanity". That's the image I saw as I stamped and painted. :-)
