The Virtual Paintout for December

This month the Virtual Paintout is in Ecuador.  I found 3 interesting photos and did two of them.  The first one is a building and done in Uniball pen.. It is about 5x7 inches on sketchbook paper.

The second one is two ladies standing with umbrellas chatting.  It is done in colored pencil,  about 5x7, and again on sketchbook paper.

I did one painting last month and just barely finished and emailed it before the end of the month.  It didn't get added as I forgot to send the picture file and by the time I realized it, the month was over.  

I'm allowed to do one more and may get another done in the next two days.

My mom finally got to go home.  I will still need to help out but at least both my parents are in the same house now.  Mom is doing pretty good.  She is in a wheelchair but able to get into the kitchen and around in the living room.  

I got some more bad news though today.  I have Shingles in my eye.  Who knew you could get them there.  I will be taking meds and eye drops again.  I guess my antibodies just got way too depleted while I was caring and going back and forth between my parents.  Hopefully we caught it before anything major happens to my eye.
