The left hand doesn't know what the right arm is doing?

 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.
