On and on...







I just want to say hello to everyone. It is May and the temperature outside is 46F!!! What is going on?

This drawing is taking more time than I ever want to spend on it. It is on its 5th day. My left wrist started swelling and hurting. I have no idea why, because I am using my right hand for drawing. The left hand just stays wherever I rest it. The other day I can hardly move my left wrist. I thought I had arthritis or gout. Argh! 

These photos were taken today before my husband and I left for Mozart's Symphony No. 40.  Yes, I changed and got dressed and brushed my hair. :)

Yeah, you definitely gotta take care of your hands and wrists any way you can. Perhaps it's the weather? Sometimes low temperatures can make muscles and tendons more sensitive. It's strange that the left one was giving you pain. Either way, I'd recommend a gel product called Traumeel that you can get over the counter. I used to put it on whenever I was using my hand excessively long and/or in precise movements, both of which your art seems to require. Hope it feels better!

Thank you, Mauricio. I will look for that. It felt like I hit my wrist against something and today, the pain went away!!!

Love these photos, to see how you work. Intense, precise!
Hope your hand(s) calm down -- could be this crazy weather.
Our warm, sunny weather has now transitioned into cold, rainy weather.
Kansas City had SNOW last night.
Ah, Mozart's Symphony #40 -- how wonderful!

I love that symphony, it is short but so melodious. I hope you had a good time out. You work too hard. Left wrist says female issues of on particular female who is probably making you angry. Shed the anger (send it into the universe to be converted into positive energy) and the inflammation will have the freedom to leave. Don't print this if you don't want to. Tsup, tsup tsup . . .

Glad to see how you create those masterpieces. Very focus. Happy weekend! :)

I think most of us recognize the last movement of the symphony which is the Allegro or perhaps the third movement which is the menueto but this symphony has 4 movements and it is very looong. very long that my back actually hurt this morning because it lasted for two hours! To be honest, I am not familiar with the first and second movements, the molto and andante. It was the andante that the Russian American prodigy Eugene Ugorski played his violin for 35 minutes straight!!! Oh my goodness. he is only 23 years old. he started playing the violin at 5 and had his debut with the San Diego symphony at age 8! Oh well.

Now very interesting that you mention issues with a particular female. I do not have a person in mind with whom I have direct disagreements. Could it be sympathy pains because someone I care about has issues with a particular female and I am mad at the incident? I think that was it!

Thank you Arija. I love you. Tsup!

Thank you, Rick. My hand is all fine now. Hope the weather stabilizes. What will happen to all those water?

Ces said...

Rizalenio, thank you. You are so kind. It's just a drawing but it is big and it is taking longer to finish. :)

So you prefer your left hand for certain activities, I take it?

Nooooo, nooooo, noooo! You should not have brushed your hair. When one goes to a Mozart symphony, one must look like Mozart to channel Mozart.

Hahahha, Bella distracted me! You look so cute here, drawing with your bed head hair. I think I agree with Bella. **kisskiss** Deb
