Sunday Sketches: Springtime



There are various signs here as of late, showing us Springtime is certainly on its way. From blades of green grass poking its head out from the dry, brown grass to the tiny buds bursting forth atop the trees. Although I'm a lover of snow and Christmas, I'm more than ready for Spring to arrive. So, what a better way to usher it in than by painting some bunnies this week!

I've so much catching up to do out here in bloggie-land. I've had every intention of doing so but have failed. Between custom orders and dealing with a lot of shoulder pain, radiating down into my arm again from the car accident, I'm tired by the time 8:00 in the evening rolls around. Sadly, if this amount of pain continues, I'll be forced to return to my pain doctor to determine what should be done for relief. Tonight, I'm curled up in the sofa with the mister and a hot water bottle on my shoulder to alleviate some of the (almost) constant pain today.

Anyway, enough of me. I'm planning to simply rest most of the day tomorrow here on the sofa and look forward to catching up with everyone.

  2. I hope your arm feels better, maybe when the weather changes it will help.

    1. Yes, it would be good. Pain can make one cranky, too. :(

  3. Cute bunny illustration, Alexandra, but no good about your pain. :( I sure hope you feel better soon. I may have mentioned this before but my daughter was in a car accident some years ago and, after a year of doctors and physiotherapists, she was still suffering terrible neck, shoulder, and back pain due to severe whiplash and soft tissue damage. She ended up going for acupuncture and noticed an immediate improvement after the first visit. I think it only took one more visit for her to be practically pain-free. It was amazing! Just thought I'd mention it in case you are interested in trying it out. Rest up and take care. xo

    1. Thank you, Serena. And not sure if you mentioned this or not. Not a needle fan but may certainly have to try it. :)

  4. Everything about the bunny is so appealing, his round little shape and arms at his sides, bright clothes. Like a little kid waiting for his picture to be taken. I hope you find some pain relief. It's difficult when there's no let up.

  6. Oh my, that does not sound good, Alex. I keep my fingers crossed that your shoulder gets better in a hurry, and I hope without a(nother) doctor's visit.
    There is no sign of spring here yet or maybe I'm not seeing it, because we did have a few very warm days. I am very ready for spring, too, and your bunnies are so cute and very timely.

  8. Such a cute bunny! We had one in our driveway the other night and he seemed paralyzed in the car headlights as we pulled up - we even got out of the car, exchanged a few words with him before he took off like a bolt of lightning!

    Sorry for your pain my dear - perhaps you can get an injection, which I feel is better than pills. Worked for my back/leg problem and has lasted almost a year - I am SO thankful and keeping fingers crossed it continues!

    Love to you both and Brendel.

  11. Sending you hugs and hope you can get enough rest to renew your energy. Constant pain can be so difficult to carry on with mentally, so I hope you can get some remedy soon.

    Your bunny illustration is just wonderful and full of character with a hint of mischief.
