OK, a medical update… I got my staples taken out (I kind of wish I'd just done it myself), and I guess everything is alright in terms of what's happened so far. My main surgery is tentatively in March, although it's still going to be a week before I have the final results that let me know whether it's a dangerous core of malignant cells, or whether it's just a basically big hunk of bone. The preliminary results, as expect, suggest the latter. If I remember right, the doctor said I probably tore the muscle, a hematoma formed which went through a process of ossification and eventually attached itself to the tibia as a big bone tumor. That's good because it means that it can just be cut off without having to cut away part of the tibia, so I'll be nearly as mobile after that surgery as I was after this last one.

The paintings below are my first two attempts at making my own frames. The one leaning against the wall was done using that L-shaped framing board (cut/glued by me though), and the one leaning against the easel is just two by fours cut to size with corner braces to hold it all together.

I haven't decided yet what to paint on the giant canvas… I have an idea about doing a painting of Godzilla shaking his fists in anger as he is beaten in a game of street chess by a laughing King Ghidorah, with Gamera crying in the background, and both Mothra and Battra flying above them. Oh, and the game of chess will be in a fool's mate position. But maybe that would be a stupid painting, I don't know.

I'll have to sketch it out…

Wow Shannon, that's really annoying! What is it, 1997 on Geocities? Retroweb is NOT cool!
