Two digital paintings created using Adobe Brush and Sketch. Daymare Recovery Road is my initial expression of my nerve and muscle pain as I go through hours, days, months, almost a year recovering from my spinal cord injury. Working to regain strength and movement, learning to walk again, finding ways to reclaim my life. It is a long, twisted, arduous road that I must take, that I choose to fight through, from sunrise through the night and into each coming day. Others are also on this road, or one like it, so this is for them as well. Tribute to Monet's Waterlillies is the counterpoint to Daymare - the soothing, meditative memory where I go in my mind - back to Monet's pond.
