Lookie here! Lookie here! I finally got some artsy time in! It was while I was listening to a class lecture of course but whenever you can fit it in, right?
I'm not sure why I picked opened Domino's sauce containers to draw but they served the purpose. I wasn't too accurate in the shading or perspective either but I'm cool with it.
It's watercolor and ink on a hot pressed watercolor block and it was my first time using hot pressed paper. It's taking a bit to learn how the paper absorbs water and paint compared to the cheapy cold pressed paper I prefer. LOVE the block though so I might stick with it.
I'm very excited about a new book set I got in the mail today! Cory and I started watching Game of Thrones on HBO a couple of weeks ago and it's kind of hard to understand what's going on. I've heard really good things about the books though so I thought I would supplement the show a bit.
Game of Thrones - 4 Book Boxed Set
Barnes and Noble the series on sale online for $20 versus $36 in store for a four paperback book set so I snatched it up. I was a little bummed that when the books arrived they were all beat to hell but I just went to Barnes and Noble and they exchanged them instore with no hassle at all.
~~~~~and a Tumor~~~~~
So yesterday I woke up and my shoulder blade was achy. Half asleep I scratched at what I assumed was a spider bite or some other bug bite until I looked at it in the mirror. To my surprise there was a two inch welt on my back!
I looked for bite marks from a bug but didn't see anything. I thought maybe it could be a strained muscle or something except that it didn't hurt like one. My muscles around it are achy but that's about it.
None of the women at work could figure out what it was either. I was the little science project for the day and earned the nickname Quasimodo, lol. Oh - and fyi, if you aren't sure what type of squishy lump on your back you're looking for...don't try to look it up on Google.
Anyway, after getting in trouble from Cory I made an appointment with the doctor who determined what I have is a Lipoma which is basically a benign fatty tumor.
Everytime I think of the word tumor all I can think of is Arnold Schwarzenegger from Kindergarten Cop saying "It's not a toomah"
The doctor said he was concerned about how rapidly it developed (it was not there a few days ago) and the size of it. Due to those two things he recommended going ahead and getting it removed and sent off for biopsy.
Fun, fun. I'm going to see if I can get the doctor to do it next Friday so I'll have a weekend to rest in case I'm sore. At least I know I'll have some good books to read!
