When Life Hands You Lemons....


you make lemonade. So, when life hands you a virus, you go back to bed with a sketchbook and some hand sewing. That's what I'm planning for today. I got as far as the post office yesterday, just round the corner, and had to sleep all afternoon. Today, I'm tired, and would have slept in, had not the fire alarm needed new batteries, and therefore started to beep loudly just outside the bedroom door... sigh. It's cold, it's raining and it's miserable, so I'm going back to bed to draw! And maybe to sleep, too. It's good for one.

The image is Bronze Sun, an ACEO. It is one of a series made from the same manipulated image, cut up into aceos and painted/altered. The original image was of one of my paintings. It's an interesting thing to do, all told; I intend to do more of this, particularly with paintings that I feel are not as successful as they might be.

You must really love to create if you are doing it from bed while sick! Wow, the dedication. And... I imagine it is better therapy than modern medicine :)

In bed with a sketchbook doesn't sound at all bad! Hope you're feeling a bit better today!

Get better soon, Marion. Love the spirals and the makeover!

just happened on your blog and really enjoyed it. I like this piece and the idea that something not liked can turn into something else with the snip of a scissor!

Love this aceo. I have also found myself re-cycling some of my paintings into aceos in the past. Gives a good feeling of making something from nothing (well, wouldn't have cut it up if it meant anything)

BTW thanks for the link, I will be reciprocating
