Being here (in high summer)

Welcome to Spark and the Thyroid Community Team.

I get asked a lot about my art... the images you see here that are non-photos.

The medium is aquatint/etching.

Its a type of printing process, where an image is created on a sheet of copper, using corrosive salts, grounds, burnishing, sanding and scraping. After the image has been refined, its inked and wiped, pulled thru a 1.5 ton hand press with a dampened sheet of paper and felt blankets. During this ...
Welcome to Spark and the Thyroid Community Team.

I get asked a lot about my art... the images you see here that are non-photos.

The medium is aquatint/etching.

Its a type of printing process, where an image is created on a sheet of copper, using corrosive salts, grounds, burnishing, sanding and scraping. After the image has been refined, its inked and wiped, pulled thru a 1.5 ton hand press with a dampened sheet of paper and felt blankets. During this final process the ink is transferred to the paper.

Its extremely time consuming and challenging as the process is full of surprises that you don't always have the ability to anticipate or control. Many of these surprises are not um... desirable. LOL

Rather like thyroid disease.

Between the Hashi's and Aquatints I should be a Zen Master by now.
Unfortunately, I am not.

Its nice to have a goal... although I can't quite decide if the goal has me.
Namaste

Apparently I don't read my feed often enough because i never replied to one you made in NOVEMBER....lol This was regarding thyroid-related hair loss.

My thyroid doc checked my other levels (I finally got an actual endocrinologist instead of just my PCP) and upped my vitamin D significantly. She said my other hormones were fine, but she did end up switching my meds a bit. Lowered the synthroid but put me on liothyronine too. I started taking 10,000 mg daily of biotin and between those things the hair fall slowed WAAAAAY down. It's grown quite a bit now and is almost at the middle of my back and thicker than ever!

Anyway, wanted to give you an update and thank you for your post! Your art is beautiful and I love your style!

Happy weekend!
