Getting better . . .

Still horizontal as much as vertical. Yesterday was better, today a little rougher on my back but I'm getting better. I've been working on this one piece a few minutes at a time for days and days. Finally finished it today. Be back soon!

Hello Marsha:D I really enjoy all your art and creations!! I have to ask you a question:D I came across your one bedge on "her art nest blog" and I loved it:D It was the one that says:Get permission "if you take from one artist, you take from away from us all". Bravo, may I post it on my main page with your link? If not that's ok,,I'd just like to ask first:D

Ms. TumbleFish, glad to hear you're getting better!!!!!! Hurt backs suck. Stating the obvious but still, they suck sooooooooooooooooo bad.
I've been a delinquent commenter as of late but I have to say my lurking skills are much improved. Takes practice doing all that sneaky reading and such ;)
Hope you're doing even better by now.

Ooh! Love your image - you continue to stretch as an artist and it's exciting to watch. I hope your back is on the mend ... amazing how you can't do anything when that's out of whack. Thinking of you, my dear!
