Drawing in the ICU....Day 15 of 21 Day Creative Exercise



Hi Everyone...

thank you for all your prayers and encouragement for me and my family. My Father-in-Law is still in very critical condition and we hope and pray that things get better soon....

I have to admit that my sketch book is with me at all times...so I sketch while we wait in the ICU waiting room....it has really helped me out....

Today is day 15 of my 21 Day creative exercise and I created this illustration....I hope to colour it and re-post it ....

Thank you again for checking in on me and leaving me the thoughtful comments...I love hearing from you...

Oh Diana, I didn't realise you were going through this! My own father-in law has been in hospital, then died back at home last week. He was very old and he felt the time was right and was ready to go. We said goodbye to him yesterday. It's a very intense time for you right now and you have my best wishes for him to recover and for you to be strong throughout this difficult time. With love and hugs,
Jess.

I think it is wonderful that you are able to keep up with your art and focus on some happy subjects during this difficult time. I truly hope things improve in his condition soon.

I am finally taking the time and reading your previous posts in your blog. They are just filled with warm fuzzies! I especially love your food requests, and I bet you are quite the cook. Have you made or sketched Bananas Foster yet? I really wish I would have gotten them for dessert at dinner tonight and now I'll be thinking about that until I go back. Hope you are hanging in there as best you can. Keep sketching those beautiful warm fuzzy memories. You are truly inspirational, and your father-in-law is lucky to have you by his side.
Take care sweetie
