Day #12: Heather's Bamboo with Brass Crocodile
Well - this has been a busy day...I spent most of the morning at the epidural clinic at the Orthopedic Institute of Ohio where I received a steroid epidural in the lower lumbar area of my back to help eliminate some pain. It wasn't very painful - just a little nerve wracking ...worrying about the unknown.
When I finally got around to doing my work for day 12, it was already 9:00 p.m., so I looked for the easiest thing around that I could do quickly. My eyes fell on the bamboo which was a gift from the wedding of my niece, Heather in June. Amazingly, it has thrived - grown pretty well considering the fact that I do not really have a green thumb.
The painting was done in Prismacolor watercolor pencils on 140 lb. Canson cold-pressedd watercolor paper. Why I am using Canson w/c paper? Well, I mistakenly bought some last year and have been trying to get rid of it. I am finally on the last sheet! Yeah!
