Here is my self portrait for today. I used General's Sketch and Wash graphite pencil with a waterbrush to blend. You can't see all the shading. The scan didn't pick it up.
Finally tomorrow I will see the doctor about my knee. Of course I don't expect any results tomorrow. I figure the doctor will have it xrayed and then refer me to a specialist. But at least something will be started. Problem is the knee is getting more and more stressed. I stay on crutches as much as possible, but you can't carry anything with crutches. And life doesn't stop because of a bad knee. I had to go to the pharmacy today (with a cane) and just walking on the knee wears me out. When I got home I was exhausted. Plus I don't like the stress that the knee is probably causing my back and joints. Isn't old age great?
