It has taken my fingers, wrist and hand much longer to recover than expected. When the doctor said a sprain can take as long as a fracture to heal, I didn’t really take it too serious. I have had sprains before. They have never taken this long to heal! Boy was I in for a surprise. A whole month unable to work or paint, sigh, well frankly, I am just not built for that. The minute it started healing, I started doing some little creative project, even if it was just sewing a feather on a handbag – anything to get some creative outlet. Put my fingers to work. My fingers would scream in protest afterwards, so it is with much relief I can now say the waiting is over – I am back in full swing. Cooking up some good stuff for you in the studio. And spending my evenings painting for an upcoming exhibition with just five weeks to go. But no complaining from me.
