"The April rain, the April rain,
Comes slanting down in fitful showers,
Then from the furrow shoots the grain,
And banks are fledged with nestling flowers;
And in grey shawl and woodland bowers
The cuckoo through the April rain
Calls once again."

Mathilde Blind, April Rain

I did this for the nurse who takes care of me every morning during my recovery (including an injection).

    It looks funny rather than scary. But I like it.

    Nice !! :) Elfish. How old are you?
  • ElfishElfish Posts: 254 ✭✭✭✭
    Ah! It's not polite to ask a lady her age. :) Let's say I am old enough to have known life before the Internet and after the Internet. :)
  • BubblyBubbly Nightingale Posts: 30,268 ✭✭✭✭✭✭
    @Elfish how are you feeling now?
  • ElfishElfish Posts: 254 ✭✭✭✭
    @bubbli Much better thanks. Just a little anxious, as always.
  • BubblyBubbly Nightingale Posts: 30,268 ✭✭✭✭✭✭
    @Elfish Keep your spirit high and never give up. All prayers. :)

    The internet has only exploded recently @Elfish. So this still makes you a youngster. I remember when laptops were a novelty. That shows my age!

    My wife had a cancer and she diagnosed in 2012 with stage 4 and the cancer cells moved from her breast to her liver and they said you only 6 months for living , now we on 2015 and all cancer cells disappeared from her body , what I want to say?
    Nothing impossible in this life ......
  • BubblyBubbly Nightingale Posts: 30,268 ✭✭✭✭✭✭
    @talal96 I am surprised. But may be it is due to wrong diagnosis.

    I like drawing something with black pen. I used to create human face, house etc. For now, ı am no longer drawing anything. I am just drawing things by usings google sketch up. However earlier drawings helped me a lot about guessing 3 dimensional object. Like autocad, imagining top view, front view, and side view of the object is sometimes so hard. By practising with any method and any figure, it is more easy to imagine.
  • SairaSaira Posts: 846 ✭✭✭
    @elenamore ,Yes I do drawings and paintings.I painted my icon.Its an oil painting.
  • tokitostokitos Posts: 11 ✭✭

    In my childhood i used to draw political leader caricatures, people appreciates me to see my drawing, now i am not using sketching or drawing. I realized that if you keep on drawing something daily, you can improve your concentration, colour combination and perception.
    Drawing makes you visual expert.
