My husband is having a hip replacement on Tuesday so have been trying to get as much painting done as possible in the last few days as am not sure how much time I will have in the weeks to come... I have a very good hubbie who does lots around the house and generally facilitates my painting so that I don't have to worry about whether the washing and ironing is done, the gardening, the bed changed... we tend to do the housework together, mainly if someone is coming and I tend to do most of the cooking and shopping, but generally we have a good arrangement where he does the Lion's Share (get it... the title for this painting!!!) while I get on with my painting!!
Not for much longer..... apparently he will be on crutches for about 6 weeks (though if I know him he will be ditching them sooner than that) has to sit on a raised chair for about 3 months, won't be driving for up to 6 weeks and can't bend or twist for up to 3 months.... there is a very long list of what he can't do for fear of dislocation of the new joint and we really don't want to risk jeopardising his chances of a full recovery, so I will have to be a good little wifey and take care of him as he has taken care of and helped me for these last few years as I have been trying to make something of my art!!
So this painting is dedicated to him to wish him a speedy recovery so that he can quickly get back to his rightful position of Lion of the family and back to his duties!!
