Flin Flon, Manitoba and an Olds sunrise

 I'm still painting a bit, as my fingers are still sore. The doctor says one finger has trigger finger and the other has arthritis. Next week, I'm booked to have a plastic surgeon give me some shots of cortisone. I sold the sunrise picture and just finished the water color on top.

Steer skull

I painted this back in 2017. I recently gave it to a friend in a seniors manor. I'm happy someone likes it.

Winter scene


I still can't tat. 😞 So, I'm passing some time painting. This was from an art class I took. Very fun to do.

Branching Out


Because I've been struggling with a few sore fingers, I haven't been able to tat or knit or crochet. A major problem for me...I've picked up the brushes. I do belong to an art club, but haven't done a whole lot. But a photographer friend took this pic a bit ago and gave me permission to paint it. I like old rough fence posts. And also owls. So I have been playing with this for a few days. I've named it Sun Bathing. 

Painting Rocks

 I've been painting a few rocks. They are fun.

Christmas tatting


I've been having lots of fun tatting these.  The snowflakes are from the book "Four Dozen Tatted Snowflakes by Robin Perfetti.
The top is from "Frivolite Con Sabor" They can be found on Etsy. 

I wish I could tat more. But now I'm having trouble with some of my fingers, as they get stiff and sore when I bend them. I might have to behave myself for a while. :(

 Been wrestling with Jan Stawasz's cross. Took me four tries. The left one is wrong. I learned there is such a thing as a counter clockwise ring. Unless somebody knows something I don't. At which case I'd love some advise.
