My thumb is now nearly healed but still does not bend all the way and I can’t pick stuff up very easily with it either. It feels detached from what I want to do still, slow to respond, sluggish and very weak. It is sort of like another person’s thumb accidentally got sewn on.
I am keeping busy painting while I am here which is about the only thing I can do. Thankfully it was not my painting hand that was injured.
My latest work is a little more cutesy than my typical paintings. The reason I chose to paint this is because my cousin’s baby (painted here) seemed to be dropping everything just to jump into the natural world. I strongly identified with this. I thought many readers here also would.
If interested, prints of this work are available here.
