Day 26

Day 26 dawned for me with crummy gray wet weather that seized up my joints, set off my fibromyalgia and kicked the cold into a drippy wheezing hacking stage where coughing doesn't produce much relief. Blech day. It was bound to happen that I'd hit a day that I felt unartistic, and the combination of aches, breathing difficulty and pure undiluted groggy laziness hit hard.

I did an article eventually, How to Draw a Bird's Wing and did its illustrations, but felt too lazy to draw the entire bird and didn't use a separate page for the last good drawing anyway, so here it is -- two inches by two and a half inches, the wing of an Anhinga. Remind me to draw the whole Anhinga in more detail some time, it's a beautiful black and white bird with a shape a lot like a heron.

If I feel any better later I'll put any more art behind an LJ-cut.
