Am hoping that whatever is wrong with my knee and my back would just hurry up and get better. It might be that bench painting is not helping , but I am being careful…it might be the heat…. or it might just be getting better 2 steps forward and one back and this is a back day.
It is not getting worse. I did hurt my knee once before and it took a month or two to recover. What is worrying me , in a pessimistic fashion is that as this time I have no idea what I did to hurt them that this is old age and it will just get worse and worse.
I have been so used to ” galloping about in a careless fashion” that now I am having to carefully sit down and get up it feels awful.
Better stop moaning now.
So started today bench painting at 7am after a lovely walk through Pisticci.
Today I painted a hen, 2 butterflies, and a bunch of peppers , as well as fixing a duck’s eye and the fox’s eye.
The peppers are on a bench in the next little piazza up the street. That is the 9th bench. And there are more.
The remainder of the day I spent working on the latest portrait. It’s still not finished.
I took a walk to the supermarket around 4pm which must mean it is cooler as last week there was no way I would have gone anywhere at that time.
And now I think I need a plan for the autumn. I read that in Basilicata they expect to have 80% of people over 12 vaccinated by the end of September. That sounds like a good thing.
Am tired today.
Wine time, and tomorrow is another day. 🍷🍷 Cheers.
