Art Rage Non-dominant Hand


Just a quick post with a vase of flowers painted with my left hand using Art Rage on my iPad.

Health Update and A Wee Bit of Art

So, I spent the first eight days after suffering a constant white-hot, searing pain in the back of my hand, and the medicine was just not getting ahead of it. Yesterday the cast was removed to find a severe tendinitis in the back of my hand. A stronger anti-inflammatory was prescribed and a splint has replaced the hard cast. This leaves the affected part of my hand pretty much unwrapped. I am still experiencing a good bit of pain, but is not so searing and the medicine is able to quiet it a bit.

My dear in-laws sent a lovely bouquet to me. I wasn't able to get the right perspective when I photographed it because I had to set the camera on a stack of magazines in order to hit the shutter release.

I attempted a loose left handed sketch but my eye level was further up than this camera angle.

I've been trying to stay up with your blogs and they are adding bright spots to my long days. It is such work to leave comments that I haven't been, but I do want all of you to know how much having your stories to read and your art to look at has meant to me as I work on my recovery.

It feels really to post to my blog, but it has worn me out.

Til next time.....

Unexpected hiatus


I was being a Good Samaritan yesterday morning when I took a bad spill on my daughter's tiled kitchen floor. I fractured my right arm near the wrist in two places. I have an appointment with an orthopod early this afternoon.

Somehow I can't see myself carving stamps for awhile, but maybe I can improve my non-dominant hand drawing.

I'll keep you posted and hope to be able to find a creative outlet during my recuperation.
