Here are a few views of the room where I spent most of my day: the living room. A few views are from the vantage point of lying on the couch. The rest are of the art that made its way up to the land of the living...the living room, that is. We're an undomestic couple with a very domestic living room that is avoided like the plague unless it's freezing cold and we're drawn to the fireplace.

I made new bugs. Happiness!
I haven't done any wirework stuff in a while. A cousin requested to have one commissioned for a friend and I couldn't say no even though my neck and arm is not recovered yet so I made...
After I finished all my chores I went on to make...
White Ant and...
I just can't stop making these critters. That's why I haven't made any in a while. I wont' be able to stop until my arm and hand hurts. Oh, well. I'll risk it. I need the creative fix and the members of my previous bug menagerie are now with their new charges so I could use new guardians.

New Visual Journal Pages
Here are some of the new pages I've been working on during my sick leave.
This is the frontispiece of my current journal. I made this right after I've seen Mirror mask several times during the day. I was quite inspired by the cathedral shaped like the key and made these houses with adjoining stairs that goes up to the sky.
This is the right half of the frontispiece. I drew this while waiting at the social security office and at the doctor's waiting hall.
This is the title page.
The table of contents.
Here's a self-portrait where I used the sonograpm print out. There's a text page that's a bit dramatic for general consumption, I think. This one's mostly part of the process of acceptance and healing.
Here's another one of those healing process pages again. I made this 3 weeks after the hysto.
The more recent is this one on rotten baggages.

Paintings for a Newly Married Couple
My niece, Brooke was married this weekend, these are paintings which are her wedding present. It started with the sentence I read in a book long ago (in German) "Ich bin geheirated um nimmer mehr allein zu früschtükken". (spelling may be off here, my German is a bit rusty) which means "I got married so I'd never have to eat breakfast alone again"
