FUTURE PAINTINGS 2019-2020 · 50 days ago

After dealing with the possibilty of a brain tumor in 2013, a severe tremor developed in my right hand. I thought my career was over. In 2016, once I made the decision to overcome this huge obstacle, I started practicing with my Left Hand. And it is now time to celebrate my NEW NORMAL and allow myself to think of the FUTURE … which to me, is a priviledge.

No one knows what this brain lesion will do, but the future is now, and i am ready to finally create a body of work (with a left perspective). After so many of these images were thrown to the floor in frustration, anger and sadness, thinking i would never paint again, it is now my opportunity to represent their beauty, and my left hand is up to the task.

The paintings are all dedicated to Stu … who encouraged me to open up THE file.

Non Dominant Hand Work (intermanual transfer) ... Painting from both hands ... Due to tremor · 649 days ago

So, this is the latest attempt from my LEFT HAND in direct comparison to my RIGHT HAND work. After nearly 9 months of practice.

This was a commission from someone who saw my old right hand works from 2009, but rather than purchasing a print, he asked for an original.

Having no use of my right hand due to a severe tremor, I took on the challenge to see if I could replicate the piece with the left hand, and give the hand and brain more training.

The left hand still takes up alot of energy so most days i can only paint an hour or two without exhaustion. But that’s an improvement from 6 months ago, where a half hour was all i could do.

I think this is encouraging.
