May After Surgery: Recouping, In Pain, and Bored

I guess it is good to be able to say I am bored.
Drawing this EDM challenge has not helped all that much because it is a bit like a
coloring book, not what I am interested in.  On the other hand, I have no creative juice
left in my body right now so this is fine.  Like a big doodle.

W15 12-17 MAY SKETCHBOOK 001I had to draw steps.  I choose the 12 steps.
More interesting than a few steps in our building!

W15 12-17 MAY SKETCHBOOK 003 W15 12-17 MAY SKETCHBOOK 004Then what I last bought and what I use everyday.  Art supplies, what else?
(Oh yes, until I heal from the surgery I am using Percoset, thank you pain killer goddess.)
I am majorly in love with Daniel Smith’s Mayan Orange.  Yum.
And after all is said and done, forget most pricey pens.  I love the cheap preppy pens and fill them with my favorite inks and they never clog unless majorly abused.

W15 12-17 MAY SKETCHBOOK 006Things we throw, or would throw out or?
Here amusement hit the pages, because the cats have kept me amused.
When M brought some early watermelon I drove Sammy crazy throwing seeds over his head while he slept.  He hears them but doesn’t see them bounce around.  And his favorite Duck (named after the Oregon Ducks) Mouse is always brought to play.
Kamala has this very weird blue feathered mouse whose eyes lite up and she makes a beeping noise.  Kamala LOVES her, and this amuses me too.

W15 12-17 MAY SKETCHBOOK 008I actually did some cooking.  Kept me sane and interested in life!
There is only so many old movies I can watch and reading on drugs is a losing affair.
Marinated ginger-garlic-chili teriyaki turkey over rice and BBQ anything.

Finally, bored bored bored by the prompts.  Phoning it in.
A doodle at best, and I’ve done better doodles.

Drawn in an Pentalic Field Book (using it up, not that fond of them)
with Pentalic HB woodless pencil, LYRA watercolor graphite pencil,
various pens and with De Artramentis Document ink, Super5, Noodlers ink
and Daniel Smith, QoR, and Holbein watercolors.

    I’m glad you are healing. Your doodles are better than so much “art” do I eouldnt be upset. I hope you are able to be fully back at it soon.

    Welcome back!! Actually I love the cupcake! It grabbed my eye. Keep pouring out your boredom onto paper. Get rid of it from your inner self.


  3. Happy percoset. Glad to hear you’re on the mend. Boredom is good. It fosters creativity, if you let it. 😀

    Oh for the time when you are back on your feet, painting what you love! Hang in there.


  5. Kate Robertson says:

    Even a little art while you are recovering helps in that process I think. The cupcake made me smile. I hope you are feeling better soon.

    Super illustrations!! Sometimes we need to succumb to taking some meds to help us through- I know. Hope you are feeling much better with each day!
