In recent months, I have neglected this blog – for many reasons really – life just seemed to become chaotic and as is usually the case … Murphy’s Law – ensures that everything that could possibly happen, does happen, all at once.
Reluctantly I find myself with time on my hands – hmm… literally.
I sustained a crush fracture of my right wrist just over a week ago.
I’ve had surgery to secure all the bone fragments and with the high-tech, metal plates, screws and bone grafts, Ash, the clever, competent surgeon has also managed to repair the torn ligaments. It is these stringy, white ribbons of elastin and collagen fibres, that help to bind the joint together.
My wrist and hand are painful and swollen, but I know that with rest, time, ice (hmm…lots of drugs!) keeping my arm elevated & supported, and putting my wrist joint through a range of movements, frequently – flexibility and function will return. I just need to be patient.
So – hello again dearest abandoned blog! How you goin’ eh? Let’s rendezvous and try to get something creative happening’ here.
I hope that I will be able to paint and draw again with my dominant right hand – but until I do – here are a few snapshots of some of my work – both paintings and photographic images.
Do drop by and say hi – and I’ll wave with my left hand. 👋
