I told you yesterday of the Beautiful Artistic Daughter's determination not to allow such a small thing as a broken arm to stop her.
Actually it was a bone fracture in the elbow of her dominant arm but that's enough for me to call it a broken arm.
She had it in a temporary cast and then a huge immobilizing brace.
But for this artist, who goes by the acronym BAD, "immobilizing" is not in her vocabulary.
So, let me show you what she's been doing in her recovery instead of resting.
That once flat black cylinder is now a bedazzlement of small beads and tiles.
She says it could be a base for a gazing ball or a lamp or . . . whatever you want it to be.
A thing of beauty.
And a measure of one artist's determination.
Her name, by the way, is Gayle Vanessa Bolton, and she can be found in Prescott, Arizona, USA.
