Time to heal

I can't believe how long it has been since I last posted in my blog.  I feel quite sad actually but when I look back to the date of my last post, I remember how ill I was at the time.  My fibromyalgia was at its worst and every part of me seemed to hurt.  My vision would blur most of the time and I battled to do any fine work in my paintings.

So I put away my paint, paper and canvases and tried to get better.  I found alternative treatments to help for the pain and the fatigue and was able to land a job again as Graphic Designer in 2012, but this meant relocating from my beautiful Port Elizabeth to the hustle and bustle of Johannesburg.

With tears in my eyes I packed and moved, making sure my art materials were packed in.  I started playing around with abstract paintings just to get into the feel of painting again.  Though not finished, I like having them to fiddle on when I can't do fine work.

The painting of the Rhino is also painted with large brushes and is quite rough.  The more I look at it, the more I want to get stuck in and refine it. 

So these are my projects that keep me going.  Till next time, have a wonderful week.
