Again, nothing on my desk to photograph, because I haven’t really been in the studio this week. I’ve been playing with my new iPad Pro that came last week.
For full details, please scroll back down through my blog, but here are my first efforts using the brilliant art apps (Procreate and ArtStorm)– using the iPad Pro with the Apple Pencil which is a truly awesome combination!
The above mandala, coloured:
and finally some early experiments in digital painting:
Still got a long way to go to be fully proficient but it’s all very intuitive to use.
Last week our WOYWW hostess Julia warned me that this thing would take over my life big-time and I think she is turning out to be right!
I saw my surgeon on Thurs. and my scan showed I continued to be clear of cancer, which is a relief. However, it showed some small clots on my lungs and I have to take a low dosage of aspirin to thin my blood a bit. Nothing to worry about apparently.
No sooner was I over that weird cold-like bug than I’ve gone down with a stomach bug now and have been feeling quite poorly for several days. I’ve had griping pains and quite severe pain in the area around my stoma which caused my hubby to get in a bit of a panic and insist that I phoned the stoma nurse, which I did. They want to see me next week once I am no longer infectious (if it is a bug) and ascertained from my symptoms that it’s unlikely that I’ve developed an obstruction or a hernia. I feel as if I’ve been kicked in the stomach and generally feel poorly. I thought I was getting better yesterday but today I’m feeling really rough again.
It turns out that after several falls and my hubby saying her speech was slurred, and him fearing she’d had another TIA, that Mum has had the doctor and she has a UTI. She’s on antibiotics now. She had another fall yesterday because she is quite unaware of how unsteady she is, and refuses to ring her bell for help, and tries to get to the loo on her own. I am sure she will bounce back from this as she has from everything else!! My hubby says there’s a new lady in the home, in the room next to Mum’s who’s really cantankerous and even worse than Mum – (hard to believe that’s possible!) perhaps they ought to make them share a room!!
Happy WOYWW everyone.
