Sorry I missed out last week, even in commenting. :crying:
I have been down in plenty of pain since the 14th. I bent over and sneezed and pulled a muscle in my back...intense pain!
That in turn affected the muscles involved with my breathing. All that complicated my COPD. But I'm finally coming back with Ibuprofen. :clap:
I had a painting started from last week....I'll finish it sometime later.

Thanks for the great pics, Susan!
I cut loose with a Springtime landscape.

Oil on a 5x7 canvas panel.

C&C welcome....Thanks for looking.

Done at 2 hrs.

So sorry to hear about the muscle pain and the added complications it caused - do get well quickly please.:)

You'll not believe this but I almost did this crop too - what a super painting you've made from a few elements Deano.

Deno, very nice, I like it a lot

Deano just what your beautiful painting suggests, is what we all need right about now "a breath of fresh Spring air". Sorry to hear about your back - don't you just love it, sneeze and your "down and dirty" for a while - hope you'll feel better soon.

yikes Deano, what a process you body has gone thru! take it easy man
great painting

Nothing like a twisted back muscle - instantly debilitating. Glad you're managing the pain. Lovely painting which promises more spring flowers. Great crop.

I like the way you have just taken the fence, really nice and great light behind.

03-25-2013, 09:37 PM
hope you feel better soon... Love the browns in this lovely abstract..

This is lovely, and know it made you feel a bit better just being able to do your art. Get well soon!

03-27-2013, 03:56 PM
Ouch, Deano! Sorry to hear about the health issues but glad the ibuprofin is doing its job. This is delightful.

A beautiful painting and signs of spring is what we need right now :thumbsup: , kneeling or bending alone stirs copd up bad and with a bad back must be hard

I love how you worked on a small area of the fence and the how you played with the light and shadows Dean.
I hope you are feeling better, it is good to see you posting again.

It's amazing how you can be in pain, but create such beauty! I like how the plants portray movement and that they are living/growing, where as the fence is firmly solid and does not live or move. Neat.

Blessings to all!

Hi, Guilli!
Thanks for the kind thoughts. And thanks for the suggestion...a few red berries or blooms would be a great "popper'! :thumbsup:

This is Lovely Dean, I like your landscape type work, you should do more.:clap:
Gulli's suggestion is great, the icing on the cake.:D
So sorry to hear of your being down, do hope you start feeling much better soon.
Takes time, so don't push it.....
I missed seeing your work last week too, was wondering what was up, you hardly ever miss it......:angel: :wave:

03-28-2013, 08:34 PM
Hope you're feeling better Dean.
Great job as usual - and all those details in 2 hours!

Hi Deano,
what a great - and also unusual (ref. the colors) spring painting! I like it a lot - like all of your paintings.

I'm sorry to hear that you're not well and hope that everything will be sorted out soon.

I also missed your painting last week - but have to admit, that that was a great opportunity to discover your blog :D

Take care!
