I am so happy to be able to pick up a brush and start painting again! Whoo hoo! I have not painted since November when I had surgery on my right hand. I have since had another surgery in the abdominal area that set me back abit. But no more excuses! I am, and have started two new projects. Yes!
Although I have to tell you it is amazing how self doubt quickly sets in when left unattended for so long. It was as though I forgot what the heck I was supposed to do. My first day of holding my brush was a great disappointment. Oh woe is me! All I felt I acheived was spreading much across my canvas. I am happy to report this was a fleeting feeling which passed the next day. It will take me awhile to finish my project, but it is at least started and progressing.
Not sure, but think after not using your hand in so long, it forgets what it is supposed to do! Could be some truth here. It was not stated to me, but I have had no physio, where others I know have had. It is interesting how whether it is art or surgery, the Artist (surgeon) approaches each task differently. Rarely are things without a deviant from start to finish. We always seem to add our own spin on things. Just like life.
Or as the more common phrase states: "Life is like that!"
