Well, my last post was somewhat of a gripe over a busy schedule and lack of painting time. Since then, I was working on an entry for the Rainbow Brush painting competition organized by Marike Reimer - I didn't mention it or post pictures because it was a competition entry. ("I'm working on a figure but I can't show anybody pictures of it" seemed kinda a non-starter so far as painting blog material goes.)
Well, the bad news is that I was in a car accident in the middle of July and broke 2 bones in the wrist of my painting/primary hand - nobody else injured, but the car's still under repair. The other bad news is that I've not been able to paint since.
GenCon was a good time, it was nice catching up with a lot of people I've only chatted with on Facebook. I took some pictures, bought some games, saw a lot of cool painted figures. I also want to give a big "thank you"to Marike, who when I told her about my accident and my half-finished entry, she gave me one of the custom "Rainbow Brush" dice that all the other entrants received - I'm glad the competition went well, there were a lot of entries, and a lot of money was raised for a good cause.
The good news is that I'm out of my cast/splint/bandage (it took a while and a lot of wrapping changes before they realized I had broken bones) and have been working on prepping some stuff in the background here. I plan on getting back to work painting now that I can use my hand easily again!
