Pine needles

I put some needle-like strokes on with liquid mask which has a glow-in-the-dark orange tint!  (Really - why the orange traffic cone color?)  Then I painted various greens, browns and purplish colors to the needle clumps.  I feel like I'm doodling.  But doodling is good therapy.  I've been stressed over one of my pets for weeks - visits to the vet, cleaning out the abcess myself four times a day, giving antibiotics and pain medications, preparing special meals, fearing the worst.  So I haven't painted much in the last 3-4 weeks, as you probably have noticed.  I'm hoping my pet will hang on for a while - I would miss her terribly.  She is eating better, is perky, and is amazingly cooperative for all I have to do with her.

Carolyn! You are doing a wonderful job, caring your bunny. You grant for her your love. And it really helps to her! I know, how this is a hard to think about worse. But don't think! Simply love! :-)

I like how you have taken to paint the branches and bark of pine tree! It is very difficult and painstaking job! I love how you painted the upper left branch in the shadow! And I see you still working on this picture and I wish you have more time to paint and more time for yourself! You are very kind and always take care of all!
My smile for you, Carolyn! :-)
