Just a little something to kick start my little grey cells back into action. My second Covid vax hit me hard, but I have no regrets and would still do it again--believe me when I say getting Covid was no walk in the park. So, if you have any doubts about the vax, please don't hesitate, and keep wearing your masks, etc. We must win this fight!
Thanks for the view, your kind comments and continued support.

One heck of a headress she is wearing. Hope it is not too heavy. She is a lovely woman. Still use mask myself.

Now THAT is a hat!
I get my second shot on the 22nd. I'm going to stock up on soup ahead of time.

She looks awesome, Barb! Those grey cells look to be firing on all cylinders... Nice!
We had the J&J version which is a one-shot deal, and had nothing but a slight soreness for a couple days. But any effects would be worth having some kind of defense against that cursed virus. So glad you kicked it's butt!
And we WILL win this war. It's cost far too many lives.

This is so gorgeous. I like how you’ve used both sets and blended them into a perfectly harmonious image. The colors just pop off the page! I really miss your art when you’re ill....so glad you’re getting through this.

Wow, this portrait of a fabulous character is fantastic, wonderful worl, Barb!
I had the first injection of the Pfitzer vaccine in February and the second in March, with no side effects, just a little pain in my shoulder for a few days. And of course, I continue to take a lot of precautions, mask etc not to transmit the virus!

This is a fabulous headdress. She looks royal, and important and beautiful.

Ditto, Barb (bakapo). Great coloring of that majestic headdress, and she looks down and away as if she's lost in reflection or thought, almost as if there's a sadness in her even as she wears this glorious headdress. (She's in shadow, which helps the feeling of sadness.) Beautiful crimson reds in the background, esp behind her face; and the feeling of a queen bearing the burden of a huge tradition on her shoulders. Very thoughtful work, Barb.
(I tried to give you a link to a famous rembrandt, with a similar theme, but the site continually deletes all links in my comments, so I stopped. If you want to see it, google "Man With a Golden Helmet" by Rembrandt, and see the Wikipedia link if it shows up: You'll see an opulent golden helmet worn by a man who's sunken in shadow and melancholy...just wanted to make a comparison...)

Beautiful way of jumping back into things. I had my second shot a few months ago. Working in a healthcare environment it was still my choice to make. I was down for about a day but I don't regret it. I count myself but fortunate and grateful that I haven't caught COVID.
