I'm Molting!

 I am sorry that I have not updated this blog in a while, but I have no new painting to post. My family and I all had the dread disease this summer. We recovered nicely, and everything in our lives is now back to normal, except ....

The skin on my hands is peeling off in stages, and the new skin has not yet hardened. The result is cracked and painful fingertips, which makes painting painful. This has happened to me in the past following a prolonged fever. My doctor said that while it is uncommon, it is not unknown. So yay for me.

I hope to get back to a more regular painting output in September. I always find painting relaxing, and I have definitely been missing it.
