|Chair, graphite pencils, 6" x 8"|
From a productive week, to one lonely drawing done while watching disastrous election returns.
Not that either candidate was attractive, but I was hoping the less offensive liar would win and we'd stay status quo while we hunted leadership that could restore our pride. The election turned my stomach, gave me an instant headache that still hasn't quit. A government dominated by one political party is out of whack. We are listing way too far right and are in desperate need of realignment.
Then there were our doctors appointments; we had one everyday. Physicals. I am great; Ellis, not so much. He has more tests to take. He's anxious and so am I.
So the state of my nation: My government is too one-sided; our health is up in the air; and I am in a state of discontent, a bit angry, a lot sad.
With me, balance is everything. It is the key to wellbeing. When things are out of kilter, Painting (where composition, control and judgement count) falls off the table. I need to scrub floors and clean closets, polish mom's silver and sweat on a bike to work off my funk.
Given this last week, one drawing was quite the accomplishment--as was mom's silver coffee service.
