Touching Base

Hi all. Just thought I'd touch base.
So, my 91 year old mother-in-law was seriously hurting - her back - and my oldest went to live with her to make sure she didn't fall or anything. But Grandma (AKA the energizer bunny) thought she would just make it to the restroom herself and, of course, fell. So we've had long days in ER, and the Hospital, and now, a convalescence hospital. But she is recovering nicely. She has a mind like a steel trap and like I said just keeps going and going and going...... We should all be so lucky to be of sound mind, if not body when we're 91. She tells the greatest stories about WW2 and being a enlisted nurse stationed in India.
Anywhoo, I washed the sheets on the bed and threw the down comforter on the ground and then decided I needed to practice drawing folds and such. So there you have it. Folds and such.
Pencil and charcoal on that Canson paper I like so much.
Cheers all. May your days NOT be filled with visits to the ER.


  1. Glad to hear she's on the mend,amen to your wish!!
    Fantastic folds ,just like an artist to not waste an opportunity.For a second I had to think who is this on my blog roll?? Its been so long,too long.

    1. I agree. Far too long, but that's the way life rolls as you well know. Hugs across the pond.

  2. Really nice drawing! Sorry to hear about your grandma. It isn't easy- been through that with my mother in law.

  3. Life is tough, but the tough keep going. Having your art even to think about during hard times is a gift. Glad she is on the mend, sounds like she is quite an amazing woman. Love the drawing.

  4. Thank you Giselle. Thank you Margie. It's nice to know we can have a bit of a rant and others pat us on the back and make us smile. :)
