April's fall brought pretty extensive rotator cuff surgery. If you have even had this surgery, you know how disabling it is. it is a very long recovery, much longer than it looks like. As an artist having my dominant hand disabled has been very difficult to deal with. Finally, I took up a pad of paper and the easily available pastel pencils and began to draw the experience with my left hand. Due to the tendinitis/overuse of the weaker side, I can only draw every two or three days. But here is what I have done.
