 :clap:  Rita, what can I say that hasn't already been said except "magnificent".  I thought it was a photograph!  Congratulations on such fine work.  Patricia

Thank you so much Tony and Zilpa for your warm welcome back :flowers: :1hug: , i did miss this great family. Never thought i would be able to do without any painting or drawing for so long, but i am so happy that it is coming back, even if it is just a little. I still find it very hard to just sit down and take up a pencil, mostley i'm still too tired and only sit and stare :( . But the sun shines today so nice, the sky is blue and this day is the first that i really feel that i would love  :smitten: to draw...the fuchsia from the Let's Draw course.
So hopefully it was only some winterblues and with the upcoming spring my drawing and paintingfun and joy is coming back.  :promise: :smitten: :yippee: :cheering: :cloud9:

Thank you Glenda and Dianne for your lovely comments :smitten: .

Well i have some bad luck lately, just now the joy of creating is starting to come back...i hurt my back. I was on bed for almost two weeks but finaly be able to walk and move again. Not as i do normal, very slow and very limited, and still being in pain, the severy breathtaking pain i had for two weeks is lessen every day a bit more.

I made a start with the fuchsia just before it happend... i really hope to finish it somewhere this month, but for now i just live trough the day and just have to see how i feel every day.
Give my love  :hug: to everyone and say  :wave: hai from me. I do miss you all and really hope there doesnot show up some new and not really fun thing again.

Hi Rita,   :wave:    So nice to see you here!  Sorry you've had such a difficult time. 
You say you've caught up on the posts?  Well, you're way ahead of me!  I'm missing a lot here, just no time these days.
Anyway, I'm looking forward to seeing your fuchsia when your finished. 
Take care of yourself.  Best wishes for a speedy recovery.   :1hug:
