Things getting a bit out of control. Thought posting the groupings here might might help me clarify, focus and move! Exhibition is a small one, tells the story of a fateful day on the Bruce Highway in central Queensland, Australia. No major long term impacts. These are part of a section linked to the extended hospital stay that resulted. One more, of the ambos hasn't been started yet. They are all A3 soft or oil pastel - except the yellow one. That's acrylic.. I've got wooden broadsheet frames from a nearby newspaper that closed the year I was born. I'm going to hang them close together, hopefully to end up with a simple puzzle shape.

In order: translating Doc speak, the much repeated path from bed to tests, being watched, started under the trees, those bright lights, 000 angel.

All of them are very interesting. My favorite might be the last. Great.
Many thanks. I started this as a Wet Canvas years ago. Felt it was perfect for this exhibition. Editing with new skills.
 
Hmmm... Very mysterious when taken as a whole :unsure: My favorite is being watched; it's downright unsettling.
 
I k
I would not want to have a fever and look up to # 3 but the rest are enjoyable.
I know. There was one matron, and a couple of 'doctors in training', that's how I saw them looking at me. Again. And again. Over 10 days.

Thanks. It was. I am trying to capture many aspects of the adventure ... as it was. Short story is they couldn't find the cause of the pain. Staff involved fell into 2 camps. We'll investigate til forever, and send 'er 'ome - comeback if it gets worse.
 
I'm sorry for what you went through. It's inspiring to see the beautiful art that created as a result. ❤️
 
"Being Watched" reminds me of the time I spent in the hospital, and the "Vampire Lady", as I teasingly called her – who else would come at 5:00 AM for blood? – would peek around the curtain! 😁

I also like "Started Under the Trees". It looks almost like a thumb and finger holding a pastel while the picture is flowing out of it. 👍

After 10 days that were very full on, I was a bit of a wreck. Just as well I have a good support system ... that let me do tuff! 2 hours after I arrived home, I created the first dancing on the Bruce image. Not a great photograph, it is also in the exhibition.
