Caregiving is a mixed bag. Mostly one hears about the self-sacrificing, magnanimous, ungrudging, and saintly characteristics of the caregiver. Not always so. I'm here to tell you that in addition to the above, we caregivers have our bitchy and dark humor characteristics and we talk about it to each other. Just saying. Mixed bag.
I'm experimenting with embroidery techniques combined with whatever I can think of to use to get the thing across. The above is "Hard Day With the Sick One." The outline is embroidered with color pencil shading. A black paper border is sewn to the linen canvas.
