PPF 1/17

Hi Everyone!

Sorry I missed all of you last week. I fractured my foot again, along with some nerve damage and Achilles tendon problem. Yes, all on the same foot. Geeess. I was refereed to a great podiatrist right here in my town. He gave me a cortisone injection that DID NOT hurt in the slightest. I have had them before in my foot and OMG it hurt. This guy has it down with no pain, so I was happy with that. I have to change my shoes to something stiffer and of course some more exercises on the foot. No medical boot so far. 
I hung my Black to White paintings on the 15th and I will say they look amazing hung all in one place. I went to take photos yesterday and there was a very large group of people ohhhing and awing. Made me feel pretty good. Oh the photos? I forgot to put my memory card in my camera. So I will go over tomorrow if it is not storming like today.
I am now working on my new leather exhibit. I am pretty happy with what I am creating and feel that I will get both walls filled. Here is what I finished today. 

You know me, give me a skull anytime.

This guy is 5" off the canvas.

 This is a 5x5" abstract painted glass then put into a leather frame.

I love how this turned out.

Abstract leather on painted wooded frame.

Since my hands are doing better, I have done some more beading. This is Peyote stitch with increased Peyote puffs. This is something I use to do quite often.

This piece is Peyote with a twist not crocheted. 

 I made my own end caps since I have none. LOL

Linking all of this up with Paint Party Friday and all of the wonderful artists there.

Honor and integrity in art, in life.

Lovely pieces, but so sorry about your painful foot.

Oh, it sounds like you've had a rough time. I took a tumble down the stairs recently, nothing broken, but a badly sprained ankle which was black for weeks. That was sore enough; I can only imagine how much pain you were in. Your artwork, as always, is superb. Love those leather pieces. Hope you're feeling better soon.

Happy PPF Nicole... I love your artwork. That's so cool that your black and whites are receiving that attention, you would feel so proud :D)
Those necklaces are very beautiful, as are the painted glass with their unique frames.
So sorry to read about your ankle... goodness me, what a thing to happen. How nice, however, to have had a cortisone injection without it hurting! Heal up quick xx
