Sneak Peek into my Sketchy Life

Hadn’t been to life drawing class in over a month and now with my “foot in a sling” there are no nudes – other than Freddie –  in my immediate future.  These are the last few quickies.

Here are 10-minute sketches that are “printable”.

The next is what a typical one-minute warm-up looks like.  

The aim is to get the “attitude” or the “gesture” as there’s no time for details.

  1. I’ve been thinking about getting a pair of inserts! If it works that would be a great solution.
    Cortisone is a very ambiguous medicine. It’s important to weigh the benefits against the side effects and too many injections could also cause more damage than healing.
    Wishing you a lovely weekend! 😊

  2. I know leg troubles all too well sadly and how it can imprison you at home to a degree. I have achillodynia, an inflammation of the Achilles tendons and surrounding tissue since last November and it really sucks! (Pardon my French 😉).
    What kind of classes are on offer?


    • Sarah,
      I’ve been taking classes through the Emeritus program at the Junior college and there’s a variety and each class only costs $5.00. I’d like to take a painting class but don’t want to get up early in the a.m. . . .

      (I had a foot neuroma and used Traumeel cream for several months – twice a day – and it helped A LOT. It’s got arnica in it which is used for pain and inflammation – bought it on the internet but health stores might carry it)

      • Thank you so much for the tip about the cream!! I’m now running around with Birkenstock sandals which seem to help too. Healthy footwear seems to be important – who would have guessed. 😉 Wonder though what I can do in winter! 😂


        • Sarah,
          I wore Crocs for 2 years before I found a podiatrist who worked to change how I was walking (inserts). All the others just wanted to give me cortisone injections (one helped for awhile and then I developed horrible reaction to the cortisone which was worse than the neuroma pain) . . . Hope you get some relief before your toes freeze over with the weather.
