In April of '16 I wrote this post
https://theexpressivepalette.blogspot.com/2016/04/so-its-like-this.html things were going well but suddenly I had an update to that post... a stroke in Dec.
Once again, life as I knew it changed & my art came to a stand still. I closed my etsy shop. After months of therapy I was able to pick up my art supplies. I began reworking & experimenting with 2 pieces I no longer cared for, & liked the result. I ended up making a few more mixed media landscapes. I like the simplicity of these pieces and the more subdued color palettes.
I still have trouble painting. Since I paint on the kitchen counter & stove top, setting up, painting, then cleaning up so I could prepare dinner, and setting up again - well it's just to difficult for me these days.
But there is good news that has come from all this, & I'll share the news in a future post :)

mixed media abstract
When I was making this piece in 2016 before my stroke,
it had me thinking of deep space,
it was as if I were on another planet singing praises.
It's mixed media and acrylic on cradled ampersand.
I haven't listed it on etsy as yet.
