I’m back to posting new paintings again after a terribly long break. It was anything but a “vacation” though. My father had a major stroke last February. This left him bedridden and dependent on my Mom, brother and me for almost everything. We dropped everything we were doing as the hospital became our home for a while. I did plan on doing some pencil drawings there, but I couldn’t find the energy nor the interest to do anything. Unfortunately, this went on for a good while after we were back home again. It took some time for us to adjust to the new schedules, duties and lifestyle. I can’t say we’ve finally settled down, but I did manage to start painting again several weeks ago.

I have lots to catch up on, but it feels good to be back again.
