Daily Art “From the Other Side” continues

This sure has been a joy to learn how to use my left hand to paint and create art. My goal is to be able to use my right hand again to paint and write by April.  Until then, I will be happy to have two hands. It sure has been a learning experience, but for the most part, I have been able to figure out how to do most things with my left hand. Some things, such as twisting together electrical wires, created quite a challenge but I was able to overcome them. Most people say,  “I could never do that!” but you would be surprised! People have reported similar experiences and one of my artist and one of my artist friends artist friends told me about one of her artist friends. She had a dry spell of creativity. Not to be daunted, she decided to use only her opposite hand, meaning her non-dominant hand, for one whole year. That simple exercise, as challenging as it may seem, may be the secret to unlocking the creative mind once again. Do a Google search. There are many exciting happenings and studies that have shown switching back and forth from your dominant hand to your non-dominant hand can help your brain work better. Who doesn’t need that?? Have a great day!
