…. to me it’s a big step….

I try to keep this blog about my artistic journey and not bombard you with personal matters…. however over the last six to seven weeks these two areas have collided…

After struggling for the aforementioned weeks where everything was an effort, at times, unbearable pain, sheer exhaustion and joints that didn’t work as I would like, I have now been diagnosed with rheumatoid arthritis….  That’s the ‘When Life Gives You Lemons ‘ moment and all the self pity I will allow myself, as I continually remind myself, lots of people face worse…

A management plan has been organised so I am hoping to see and feel improvements over the next three or four months….

…and something must be working because today is the first day in weeks that I have felt like picking up a paintbrush…..

… so as you see, it might be just a splodge….but it means the world to me….!!
