In the past few months I have spent most of my time actually creating art using traditional media, namely colored pencils and pastels, and also dabbing a little bit into watercolor territory. Unfortunately unforeseen events come along and cross our path to test our mettle.

I am currently recovering from two surgeries I've had performed in the past 30 days. The first one happened at the end of June to decompress the ulnar nerve of my left arm. Being the control freak that I am, it was extremely frustrating to have to rely on my spouse for everything, from cooking to driving to take a bath... And I had just barely recovered from that first surgery when the second one happened just last week, a knee arthroscopy to repair a torn meniscus. At least now I'm able to scratch myself, although I'm spending quite a bit of time sitting around with my leg elevated and passing the time drawing, reading, and watching movies (thank you Netflix!!!).

As a present to myself to make me forget the discomfort and the pain, I ordered online a whole set of Caran d'Ache Pablo colored pencils, all 126 of them, and I've been dying to try them out. I'll be sure to post any creations I make using those gorgeous colored pencils.
