night mares and charlie horses

this piece represents the time i spent in december and january dealing with a pinched nerve in my back. i continually had charlie horses, running from my waist to my toes on my right side.

this is done in a composition book w/ acrylic paint as the background and prang colored pencils for the landscape. the landscape was sprayed w/ matte finish to keep the colored pencil from rubbing off. the horses were done w/ a black sharpie marker.

i decided not to write on the page, but just to let the picture tell the story.

if you want to read the whole story that goes to this picture -- you can find it at hand in hand.

Wow, what a story! I can empathize with the pain so much. Not back pain but monthly pain that feels like going thru labor all over again. No kidding. I'm glad you're feeling better, because all pain does is cause stress and stress is bad, bad, bad. I like your painting that was inspired by your ordeal. The colors are beautiful! Something wonderful came out of all that ugliness.
