Phoenix, Festus and feelin' fine

OK, maybe fine isn't le mot juste but I like the alliteration. Like a phoenix rising from the ashes, I am finally on my feet again, albeit somewhat wobbly, not unlike Festus from Gunsmoke. I have this urge to holler "Hey, Marshal Dillon!" Quite apropos, since we lost James Arness this month. This is just a post to say I am NOT dead and hope to stand at the easel very soon. With luck there may be some new art on these pages - Gasp!

Being myself someone who lives with chronic back pain, your journey through that dark valley has been in my thoughts. I'm very glad to hear that you are better. The fact that you are thinking of creative activities proves you are recovering, to the benefit of us all. Bob

Wishing you a full recovery and many *pain free* hours at the easel, Mark!! I look forward to seeing what you will paint in the near future!!

Don't push yourself too hard, but I do miss you art.

Thank you my friends.

I'm getting real close now. Another week of physical therapy and I should be good to go. I've got some fun stuff lined up.


Hey Mark,
I've added a link to your blog on my blog, and would appreciate a reciprocal link:
