Concerning my running- I am starting to feel like a runner again. About a week ago I ran 7 miles on the treadmill (so happy!), but I felt quite sick, to the point of using the gym mirrors to scout out a trashcan while running. I didn't sleep, eat, or drink much for a few days, so fitness took a backseat to my health. I also had final exams, papers, and paintings to tend to. I am feeling much better now, and if my running continues to go well, I will attempt my first road run within the next few days!
These are the paintings that I made in my Painting I class that were inspired by my Cross Creek and the work of Lilian Garcia-Roig:
|First painting that I made in this style and this size (36x48 in)|
|Painting two (36x48 inches)|
|Study of trees (still wet- 18x24)|
Instead of waking up at 5:30 or 6 to run in the woods, I would wake up just as early to paint the woods! Painting I was the perfect class to take this semester when I was dealing with my injury. The paintings above proved to be quite therapeutic.
