Hi, Friends, I'll Slow Down

Hi, Friends, how is your weekend?
I really enjoyed the  Rumsey Heritage Rose garden festival in Parramatta park. My art friends and I had a wonderful time in bird watching, live band music and watching sculptures in the park.
Now, not good news. My right hand has in trouble. The hand specialist is checking it, who did the surgery this year. The right hand is not so glamour at the moment with taping and a plaster(boo!). It needs more medical examination. You got why I have not either visited your blogs or left comments like before. Please pardon me. I must rest the hand as much as possible. So, I'll upload mainly my art work without a chat for a while.  

Currently, the exception is an ongoing illustration project that advocates immigrant women in Australia. The project team and I happily work together. Nearly there. I'll finish it up this month. I heartily hope my tiny work will empower Non English Speaking people and give them hope in Australia.

And our life drawing class has started. It inspires me so much. I tried to capture a model's mood in A2. Well, actually, our life drawing class member invited us, members to the rose festival. 

OK, Friends,  I have to go, but I'll certainly enjoy your blogs and never lose heart. I want to get well.


Friends, Happy Painting!!

  6. Amiga Sadami, me has dejado preocupado, porque ese tema ya lo habías superado hace unos meses. Bueno, como eres muy fuerte y llena de optimismo, seguro que los médicos volverán a dejarte esa mano bien, para que sigas deleitándonos con tus magníficos dibujos!!
    Ánimos y que tus preocupaciones e incomodidades pasen lo antes posible. Si estuviese allí, te daría un fuerte abrazo, pero espero que aunque sea por escrito, lo percibas como si estuvieras a mi lado.
    Ese dibujo con que nos presentas el blog es SENSACIONAL!!! Precioso! Hay un aire de tristeza en el rostro del dibujado. Espero que no se te haya contagiado.
    Hasta muy pronto querida Sadami.
    Arreglada, alegre y positiva!

      Sadami friend, you left me worried because you had this issue and passed a few months ago. Well, as you are very strong and full of optimism, sure that doctors let that hand again well, to keep you delighted by your wonderful drawings!
      Encouragement and your worries and discomforts pass ASAP. If you were there, would give you a big hug, but I hope that even in writing, what you perceive as if you were by my side.
      That drawing to show us the blog is great! Gorgeous! There is an air of sadness in the face drawn. I hope there will not be infected.
      Sadami you soon dear.
      Fixed, cheerful and positive!

  17. Hi Sadami, so sorry to hear about your hand. Take care of you.

    Your enthusiasm to capture passers was contagious. During the last flea market desire to take my sketchbook was stronger than the fear of drawing in the middle of the crowd. It is thanks to you that I started and I took great pleasure, many thanks!

  23. Sadami, why do problems come to the most important part of us? I think of Beethoven's deafness and now your hand? Yes, I put you in that category of genius, Rest up dear Sadami we so enjoy seeing your worthwhile work.

    1. Hi, Origame,
      Thank you! Although I'm not a genius, I admire Beethoven and would listen to him very well. His life story encouraged me so much when I had the disability and the trouble in health. I've learned from him, "Get through difficulties and reach at joy," and "how to enjoy pains in life." If you can do it, pain is no more pain.
      And I know, Oregame, you're one of the same people like Beethoven. Take care.
      Best wishes, Sadami
