Sometimes even the smallest doodle can be a great accomplishment.
|This Doodle was done in three parts, over three days. |
I can tell exactly where one day started and another began.
The moods definitely change from one segment to another, and it has little cohesion.
|Some of these things I'm surprised I'm showing,|
but even silly little critter sketches can help me feel better on days when it's difficult to even move my head.
|Thinking about headaches, and surgery coming up tomorrow.|
This was a very therapeutic sketch.
|I just drew a shape, and it became this Silly Goose.|
I love the cute little expression he has about getting a gift.
|Another sketch from a shape I drew. |
I can't decide if she's in pain, singing, depressed....or perhaps she just slipped and bonked her head.
|Barbershop Quartet Singer.|
Another drawing that started a just a little shape, and turned into this funny man.
|Starting to think about Christmas.|
|With this, and the next couple of sketches, I was experimenting a little with some portraiture.|
I must say, it's nearly impossible for me to get proportions right when I'm lying down.
(see how the eyes are straight)
|This was still in progress,|
She would end up with a cool design cloth draped over her head, but the eyes are too far apart, I may never get back to her.
|I don't even know why I'm sharing this one with you.|
She is so out of proportion.
I admit the angle is a bit odd, but there are so many corrections needed for this piece,
I think it'll probably be time to just start over.
Tomorrow is surgery day. (I guess technically today, I didn't notice it was so late!)
I have to be at the hospital at 11:30am. Surgery is at 2pm. Not sure how much art I'll be getting done for the first few days. Hopefully, at least a silly little sketch or two!
But I need to remember to
|You may remember this drawing I posted earlier in it's black and white version.|
I think the color adds a lot!
The surgery is called Endolymphatic Sac Enhancement Surgery. The endolymphatic sac is located right under and too the back side of your ear. For people with Meniere's this sac fills with too much fluid and that creates havoc with the delicate "balance" of things. (pun intended)
You can go here http://www.pehni.com/patient_ed/endolymphaticsac.htm to read a little more about the surgery. It's very hard to find exact information about it on the internet. I think that is because different doctors do this surgery in different ways. Some decompress the sac, some add a shunt, some simply remove the bone and create a larger area for the endolymphatic sac so it can expand without leaking. This is what my doctor does.
Looking forward to creating more as I heal.
