Distant Ancestors

The stars are matter...
We are matter...
But it doesn't matter.
(Don Van Vliet, also known as Captain Beefheart)

Colour pencil drawing, 19 x 21 cm (7 1/2 x 8 1/4") , with water color in parts, finished (ahem, is it?) last night when the urge to draw forced me to stay up until midnight. In spite of being tired. As my left hand still will not allow me to continue my quilting projects (as painfully experienced yesterday), I'll concentrate my creative ambition on drawing and painting until the problem will be gone. Hopefully.
Could it be rheumatism?
Can a woman with these musical preferences have rheumatism?

Are you gauchière? REST THAT HAND!! Actually, your drawing is wonderful and if you can keep at it,please do. How lucky you are that you can still be creative without the sewing component. Tell J. I think he is special - but so are you.

What beautiful color! You constantly surprise me, you are just packed with talent arent you? My hands have been behaving lately but my shoulders..UGH! Hope yours heals quickly. I find hot salt soaks help much, especially if you can find epsom salts. Might just be a touch of tendonitis?

wow that's fantastic - funny I got caught up in painting yesterday and must do some more - you forget how addictive it can be. This piece is lovely...

I'm sorry that your hand is still bothering you and preventing you from quilting, but that is a wonderful drawing.
