Dental surgery day -- no time for painting
Not only that but we were sitting in the waiting room
ready to take him home after one tooth was removed
when the nurse told us it would be six! Six! Steven
nearly had a heart attack. That's a lot of wisdom teeth --
but then Sam is extra smart. So we took a deep breath,
and now we're home administering to our recovering
young fellow. The dentist is amazingly skilled (I
used to be a dental assistant as a teenager and I know),
and the whole operation was done neatly and cleanly
within an hour.
But I am administering drinks, pain killers, mushy
food, and attending to the wee 6'4" lad. So the
most art I got around to today is this small sketch
I did waiting in the dentist's office. The children
in the picture are a family I'll be painting in the next
couple of weeks. They are lovely children, and a
happy, close knit bunch. I am looking forward to
capturing their energy in paint.
Have a taking-care-of-your-family day.
