Overcoming

https://goo.gl/photos/6xzXgaYaiMQarWx37
After a busy September, I have found myself challenged to create on a daily basis.  September art included a solo show of my work, four entries for “All Things Birds” and three entries for “The Gathering”.  I was fired up by the challenge to get everything done. 

Then I kept waiting for my dominant hand to heal from a torn thumb ligament.  My mood darkened as the daylight did.

This all changed when my sister-in-law was telling me how her art was changing by doing a daily art – even if it was just prepping surfaces.  I had this a-ha moment and suddenly I was no longer overwhelmed and frustrated.  I had this great journal that my honey had bought for me that was waiting to be filled.  I decided that I would just work with my left hand and the images that I would create would be ” good enough”.  Much to my surprise, I noticed that some things got better, some were easier and I was really  enjoying the challenge.

The slowed process of using my non-dominant hand is giving me time to “look” more than I would otherwise.  Today I am grateful for revelations!
