Quick Watercolor Sketch

“Everything you are against weakens you. Everything you are for empowers you.”
– Dr. Wayne Dyer

Quick Sketch – Watercolor 4″ x 6″

I did this little watercolor while my husband napped in the hospital.  I should be able to bring him home today or tomorrow.  This is day 10 for him.  He’s certainly anxious to get out of there.  🙂

    I hope your husband is home now. It sounds like he’s had a tough time of it. Now that he’s on the mend I hope he quickly recovers. All my best, positive wishes to both of you.

    Wow! I’ve been away to long. I’m not sure why your husband is in the hospital but I hope all is well. I’m sorry if I have missed it in the prior posting, but my wife has had a visit with the hospital in the past week also, so I’m a little lost on things. Anyway, prayers for the best of health for you and your husband.

      That’s okay, Ryan. He fell on the 6th and fractured 3 ribs and punctured a lung. He now has pneumonia and possibly some other complications. The VA hospital has him now and they are taking extra good care of him.

    This guy is awesome! …and I see by his expression that he may be ready for anything that comes his way.
    Hope your husband will be up and moving around quickly. Ten days in hospital is practically unheard of these days. I know he has been hurting because of the extent of his stay. Hugs.

      Thanks so much, Leslie. He’s at the VA Hospital in Muskogee now and I’m much happier with his treatment, plus he is now only a 45 min. drive from me. ((hugs back))

    The boldness of the red emphasizes the swagger. I love this.
