Tennessee Beauty- 2nd Try

Thank God my eye surgery last Friday was successful.   Appointment for my left eye will be March 11th.  The worst thing is putting so many drops in the eye but I'm getting used to it.
I painted this horse AGAIN and very happy with it now.  I painted with goggles on to protect my eye from the pastels. I guess I'm a little obsessed and had to do it.  I hope you like it.
I will rest my eyes now.

  2. So lovely! Hope you continue well with your eyes. From mine, it makes such a difference. Mine were done over 20 years ago and haven’t changed. Did you get bifocals? Didn’t have them when I had my eyes done. I wear readers for close work.

    1. thank you so much Jo for your comment. My eye is healing so beautifully and now I'll have the left one done on March 11th I, like you will be wearing readers which I will pick up today. I could've chosen the other method but he said that a lot of people saw an aura as they're driving so I didn't want to take a chance. Again, thank you for stopping by!!!
