Sunday Sketches


Left handed sketch #111 of Great curassow, another new bird to me :)



Gobble Gobble! I'm not a fan of turkey, never could figure out why people like it so much.

A very simple looking parrot (#113), because I am having a problem with nerve pain in my hands and feet so tried to keep things simple. I have been referred to the pain clinic but there probably wont be much they can do and I don't want to take drugs that will make me either a zombie or high as a kite. The problem with a lot of the meds that are used to treat nerve pain due to MS is that the more you take so they work, the more you walk around like you are in a haze so you need to find that happy medium where you are not in so much pain but still awake lol

Good to see that you are keeping your hands and mind active and maybe a little distracted too :) keep it up!

Christine said...

Lovely sketches, so sorry about your pain though.

I'm so sorry to hear of your pain Jennifer. It is a careful balancing act and sometimes one drug affects the other. I hope you find something that works for you. Your sketches are great. I have to admit I'd never heard of the Curassow so had to look it up!
Have a great week ahead and hopefully with a little less pain ;D

Sorry to hear you are dealing with pain. I totally understand not wanting to rely on medication with all the side effects. I hope the pain clinic can show you how to get some relief.

Knowing that your hands are aching makes your drawings even more impressive.

Oh, I wish you could be pain free without the drugs! You amaze me that you just keep going, like the Energizer Bunny :) I admire your strength.

These are wonderful! I hope you're in less pain soon. It's hard to find a balance sometimes between what's helping and what's too much... You amaze me with all that you do.

thanks Terri :) I plan on drawing even if I have to use my feet to draw lol

thanks Christine :)

Neesie, thank you :) I've pretty much tried all the pain meds the GP can give me, my neurologist might have something else but i dot see him until august so have to wait until then. might take up meditation in the mean time and see if that helps :)

thanks Paula :) trying to draw acts like a distraction from the pain :)

lol Rhonda, I wish I had that much energy :) and thank you :)

thanks Lisa :)
