Released from House

A month after the operation the doctor released me, so I drove to Tomball College for the opening faculty meetings. My hip/leg did not like it. I came home and laid down.
The progress of recovery has been steady. Every day there has been improvement. When I do something different I feel it. The next day the body adjusts and I move on.
The first days I laid in bed with pills and an ice pack and drew in my sketch books.
 I was able to set up a studio on MM's dining room table and start to make watercolors.
On the first day I was only able to work for an hour and a half, the next day longer and so on.

Here are some that I made.
The Pleasure of Freedom 11x15 07-29
The Temple of Love, Versailles 14x19 07-29
I responded to Mary Margaret's Paris trip by using post card images she brought back.
Sky Bridge 14x10 07-31
On August 1st. I started making acrylic collages using her Paris images and my painted strips from the studio.

A week ago I went back to my studio. MM dropped me off and picked me up. I did another collage. I used a painting based on a photo I took in on a day trip to the island of Capri. This man was waiting for customers as the boat pulled in. I finally found a place for it.
