Wednesday I took Thekla up to UC Davis to have the cause of her occasional lameness diagnosed. She's a very active pup and loves to run and be chased by other dogs, but sometimes she would be left with a limp. Turns out she has a congenital malformation of her right front elbow which needs to be surgically corrected. So today is the day. I pick her up tomorrow and thus begins a six week period of restricted activity - the hardest part of this ordeal for both of us.
Fifty blank panels are a daunting sight, even if they're only 6 x 6. But after the stack is broken open and the first panel completed we're off and running. Yesterday was Day One of the 50/50 challenge. The last day is July 5th. It will be here before we know it.
For those of you who are wondering what the heck I'm talking about when I said I had entered photos taken through a glass block for this year's 50/50 Show, here are the three three examples I submitted. The first is "Dark Angel", second is Abstract Landscape #1, and third is Abstract Interior #1. This is a new medium for me and I imagine this venture will keep me busy for the next couple of months.
