Hello out there. Well it has been thirteen days since rotator-cuff surgery. I am doing so well. I have just about worked off all medication. I am still sleeping in the chair however but maybe in a night or two I will be back in my bed. Thanks for staying with me. I had thought I would be able to do more with my hand than I have been able to. I have created three ZenTangle birthday cards. But it took more than a day to do each one.
I promised to give you photos of some of my previous creations. In 2006 I wrote a design Notebook. In the book there was a segment about the seven color contrasts: as stated below.
