Life of a one handed artist

So tomorrow I get to have my stitches removed that’ll be nice

wp-image-1630016438jpg.jpg but I still have another 2 weeks before I can do much more than wiggle my fingers. I’m supposed to avoid repeatative motions as basic as using a computer mouse and avoid lifting anything over half a pound needless to say my left hand has been getting a work out.

But the boredom of “being good” and following doctors orders is driving me mad. Seriously, go a day and try not to use your dominant hand…it sucks.

So today I HAD TO sneak off to the studio and get in some me time while the kids were occupied and my mother in law cleaned up the kitchen  (<—perk)

I wanted to paint but obviously paint brush was off limits and I didn’t want to make something that obviously looked like I used my weak hand so I opted for a fluid painting.

I went with a rich berry color palette to soothe my craving and added in some iridescent and gold highlights. Here are some in progress build up shots.

Here is a look at the end result as it sits to dry. I will finalize it later but so far I’m pretty happy with how it’s turned out. Plus it’s taken the edge off my creative withdrawal 😉

Cheers for now
