Speaking of doors, I walked through one last week I wish I hadn't: the sick door. I guess this bug isn't the dreaded Swine Flu, but it's piggish enough for me! After four days of cold capsules and cough syrup, feeling worse each day, I dropped the tough guy act and went to see the doctor. He quickly diagnosed pneumonia and prescribed antibiotics. Worst of all, I managed to give it to Brenda and now she's fighting through the same stuff, a couple days behind me.
I finally felt well enough today to get back in the studio and do this painting. Everything is relative, isn't it? Although I still have a pretty bad cold, I felt positively chipper just being able to work again. And when I left the studio, the late afternoon sun illuminated the fresh grass and new buds on the trees. Cooped up in the house, I'd missed a week of spring greening--the world looks brand new!
