To sleep, to dream, to check out, to catch some ZZZs, that was Saturday, after the physical trainer put me through my paces non stop. On his last visit, he pushed my limits and I passed. I was rewarded with a cane.
When I came too, I attempted this self portrait on the iPad in ArtRage. It's the most challenging drawing i attempted. I learned a lot more about what the tools can do. The tools are the key to respectable iPad drawings. Using your finger to direct them is what causes confusion and errors. Using it to guide the tool you selected makes you think your finger is making the mark; it isn't. It's the chalk, the pencil, the air gun, the paint roller that's leaving the mark. It's how the tool is set that makings your mark extra thin or thick, sharp or soft. Naturally, a lot of erasing goes on as you stumble about familiarizing yourself with the scope of each item in the tool box and a lot of "undo" clicks.
As I'm writing, my eye lids are growing heavy. The new pain pill really knocks me out. While I was told to take it every four to six hours, I think "as needed" is what I need. Out patient physical therapy starts next Tuesday, I have to be able to operate a machine a lot more complicated than a cane. Ellis is a great guy. I'd like to keep him that way. Sleep tight friends.
