A Bit of Art

I have finally been referred to the hand specialist in this area and no longer have to see the awful orthopod who continued to ignore the soft issues in my hand and appeared to be actively trying to crush my spirit. I have begun physical therapy and am already seeing a bit of improvement.

Yesterday while sitting in the living room after one of my PT take home workouts, I decided to try to sketch the view out my large window with my right hand. I am still in a cast to protect my healing wrist fractures, but am able to lightly hold a pencil.

I am going to try to get into the habit of doing art everyday and post to this blog Monday thru Friday.  I can make no promises that this will become a reality just as typing is still quite difficult and I really need to do some major picking up in my work room before any art can be done in there.

I have been keeping up with the reading of the blogs to which I subscribe, but have not been leaving comments. I must tell you that I've seen some fabulous art, though, and it makes my heart soar and my spirit begin to mend.

I need an assisted shower this morning and then the hubster and I are going grocery shopping and stopping to pick up my prescriptions.

I will try to do something arty later.

Until then.....



  1. Lovely sketch ~ sending lots of 'healing hugs' and do be gentle with yourself ~ let it flow ~ (A Creative Harbor) ^_^

  2. Well done Vicki, keep up the fighting spirit, hope the wrist will heal soon.

  3. Great sketch Vicki! Hope that wrist heals soon..

  4. Dear Vicki. You are doing so well and your sketch is lovely. It is so good that you carry on with your art. I know how you feel I had very nasty double fracture in my arm 7 months ago. I know to well what recovery process means. I even started to use my other hand to draw. But at the same time whole healing process was a life experience for me, huge lesson which actually know even if it sounds strange I am grateful for.It changed my life completely. You will get better soon I am sure about that, please give yourself time. Lots of love to you.

  5. I am so glad you have a new doctor. Worried about your progress. Trying to still get over the loss of Electrolytes. Very dangerous. Today had to work from 0130 am to 1800 pm and have to tomorrow too! So, tired. Take care. Have to get off. too sleepy.

  6. Gee, sounds like you've been dealing with the doctor from Hell! Glad you've changed doctors and are on the path to healing. Not being able to use one's hand is the pits...then we realize what incredible tools our hands are. I hope you're back 100% as soon as possible. Picture yourself healed and painting and drawing.

  7. I've had to go with one hand out of commission a couple of times in my life and it's a real pain. I'm glad you got a better human being to deal with for rehab!! That will make all the difference. :) I hope you had a really great day.

  8. Glad to hear you are on the mend and getting to work with doctors who are interested in hearing you and guiding your healing. The white and pencil drawing with the trees make me think of when I look out and see snow in the little forest in our backyard.
