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.
So sorry to hear, but glad that all are (essentially) well. Heal up, we can be patient ;)ReplyDelete
Oh, it's a minor inconvenience. The kids had the sniffles for a day or two. My wife and I had moderate flu-like symptoms. Had we not been tested, I would not have thought it was the 'rona.Delete
What? When did this happen? Very good to see that everyone has recovered. Too bad to read about your hands. I vaguely recall this happening to you before.ReplyDelete
My symptoms started at the end of July. I must have been patient zero in the MacPhee household, because everyone else started showing symptoms seven days later.Delete
Best wishes for a smooth and permanent recovery.ReplyDelete

All the best. I've so far avoided (now double vaccinated). My daughter succumbed and ended up with nasty rash...all good now though. Get painting soon :-)ReplyDelete
