I haven't done any art since my June surgery, but I did manage to finish up this colored pencil portrait for the online group Julia Kay's Portrait Party. For a while I was just to tired and shaky, but lately I just have been procrastinating. So yesterday I just told myself I'd sit down for an hour and whateer happened, happened.
Why is it so hard to return to something you enjoy, after a long break?

This year the weather is perfect, and lots of folks showed up. To tell the truth I don't even know the people in these photos, though some of the more mature ones look familiar from previous years. Later in the day the street will be closed off and there is a big neighborhood potluck, and games for children.
Happy Independence Day.

I have always loved summer, the warmth, sunshine, birds, flowers blooming. I knew I was having surgery earlier this spring, so I did not plant too many flowers, but this little pot of petunias catching the morning light has been giving me pleasure.
I'm feeling a little stronger, more wide awake, more mobile each day. I'm enjoying eating again, and have had some visitors. This isn't going to be a normal summer, but I don't want to miss it.
