Chicago 2010 & shoulder injury

    Well by all accounts the most recent Chicago show was a great success. I had a difficult time this year. I developed an injury on Friday morning that only seemed to get worse as the weekend wore on. As a result, I didn't get to enjoy the show as I normally would have. I seem to have all the symptoms of a torn rotator cuff, which means surgery. I'm hopeful that it's a pinched nerve and will heal with time. I'm not overly optimistic though.

    I did get to visit with a few folks and had some nice meals with friends. A few highlights for me; My good friend Anders' display, Wendy Rafalski's work especially the ones displaying water effects, Fletcher Clement's display, Mike Blank's display, and the very large Arnhem diorama by Dan Capuano. There was an awful lot of very good work on display, but these are the ones that stood out in my mind.

    I'm looking forward to getting back after some projects that are on the bench. Winter is near and it's the off season for triathlon training. I've been able to sculpt, but I haven't tried painting yet. I'm going to have to reconfigure my workspace a bit to accommodate this shoulder problem. I'm hoping that this injury doesn't set me back too much.
