Irises and Good News about a Good Friend (or two)
My neighborhood abounds with irises at the moment. I must remember the lesson I learned last year....since irises are so beautiful, in order to see any value in my painting, I have to walk away from the iris! I wrote about it in this post. Irises must have come earlier last year, because that post was from mid-April. What is blooming where you are?
Oh, I wanted to mention, Cathy Engberg, my friend who is a terrific painter, was interviewed as the Spotlight Artist for Daily Paintworks this week. I encourage everyone to check out the interview here.
I am thrilled to report that Jane Doe had her six-week x-ray and recheck with her surgeon on Wednesday and all is great. The surgeon actually said that her leg looks better on the x-ray than most dogs' do at this stage in recovery. He said we can move from the recovery stage to the rehab stage, and he thinks she will need less than the standard 12 weeks of rehab time before she can be released to full activity. If you are so inclined, by the way, check out this very cool article about Jane's surgeon.
