Creating these drawings/collages/mix-tapes/ dance charts of color in motion
is keeping me A/LIVE.
My ART HAND/ right hand/ is a reluctant bystander and gasps
at the wild renderings of my left hand.
I can actually “feel” my brain heat up as I work.
Surprising.
Fascinating.
Beautiful.

Exhilarating!

My WILD CHILD/ left hand is creating drawings.
Keep checking in @ my WordPress!
THIRTY so far…
My ART HAND/left hand is both appalled, amused and aggravated!
Yet, she can do NOTHING because the “HAND” lives in the  shell/contraption for the NEXT 6 weeks…OR MORE.

Fifteen days post-op.
My NON-ART hand is thoroughly a 4 year old WILD child!
I draw with this WILD hand on large boards- grasping onto  fine art colored pencils.
AWAY we go! I simply watch!
I then cut the boards with my late Mother’s 53 year old paper cutter
using my ART HAND’s forearm to push the blade down
as the WILD child holds the board in position.
I then arrange/compose the parts- akin to creating a mix-tape or editing a film.
The finished works dance, FLY and sing and do 4 year old JOY– and, keeps my LIGHT on.

Last night, a friend looked at the 6 LEFTMINGCOBALT works.
He remarked: “These are drones and extra-terrestials!”
The cobalt blue used in the exquisite porcelains of the Ming Dynasty came from Persia.
I was a double major: Chinese History and Studio Art as an undergraduate: an ancient soul explorer.

First works after my ART HAND,my right hand, was reconstructed on 25 April 2016.
Very humbling.
I am NOT left handed nor ambidextrous.
My Mother encouraged me to become an artist
– and, my right hand became my BREATH/ my WING/my FREEDOM song.
It is appropriate that I would create on THIS day, 8 May 2016, Mother’s Day,
in her honor and in gratitude.

X

Special thank you to my brother Blake, Bob + Steph, and Nancy
for “watching over” me of the first 10 days after the 5 procedures- 3 hour surgery.
Thank you to my brother Blake as well as Mike, Aliyah + Alicia
for watching over my English Springer, Jaspar Obi, in my absence.
Thank you to Beaumont for taking Jaspar out 2x day for walks
while my ART HAND heals for the next several weeks.

Thank you/shout OUT to Dr. Clare McCarthy-
a remarkable/genius hand surgeon who “gets it” with her constant empathy.
She KNOWS the significance and irreplaceable life force of my ART hand.
The same shout OUT to Claire Joubert, P. A., and Susan.
Dr. Clare McCarthy’s team is gold standard superb!
