Starting Over ... Again!

Struggling start.  The brush feels odd as well as the paper.
Because of my shoulder I have to stand to paint.  This is
new to me in the studio.  More later hopefully when things
begin to roll.  In the mean time, from Sedona

Thanks to you, I got to learn something new! Tuzigoot is white man for Western Apache Tu' Digiz, a 12th century Sinagua pueblo.

Doug, your paintings are gorgeous, beautifully sensitive - you have the touch!!!!!
I didn't know that you injured your shoulder but I'm so glad it hasn't prevented you from painting and I hope, hope you are on the mend!!!
Take care,

Thanks Deb, it's a start.
As for having it, umm, how about searching for it and hopefully finding it.

Hey Sam,

I knew my spelling didn't look right.
fanks for the correction. I should send
you some pics of the ruins. Glad I was
able to spread some knowledge.

Fanks again,

Hi Marcia,

Thank you for your kind comments.

I tore up my rotator cuff on my right shoulder a
year ago last February. It keeps me from painting
sitting down which cramps my style somewhat.

Messed up the left one as the right one healed.
All is well.

Hi Doug, these are really lovely, very fresh looking with nice colours. I also have to stand at an easel to draw and paint as I have alot of stiffness in my shoulder. I hope you feel better soon.

Hi Caroline,
Thank you about the paintings.
I see you understand the issue of
standing at an easel. All new to me,
I'm used to using a tilting drafting table
from my illustrator days.
Keep those paintings beautiful, you've
done some beautiful pieces.

Hey B,
How are you feeling?
It feels good to actually paint
again, I'm anxious to move on and see
what happens.

Thanks about the paintings and it will
always be my pleasure to stay in touch.

Thanks David, I'll see what happens.
