'four ballerinas' by myra anderson painter of the ballerina sketch . . .

I want to thank everyone who congratulated me on my anniversary!  Thank you so much!  Also,  everyone - I haven't been able to leave comments on your blogs as I would like to lately - because I have been having trouble with my left hand (I'm left-handed)  There has been some pain, slight swelling and some stiffness.  

Not to worry - until it gets better I will start using my right hand.  I like the video below because the artist is not using a brush.  I'm sure that some of you have painted like this.  I think that I will try this so that I won't have to hold a brush in my 'bad' hand.  If you look at some of her other videos you will see that she paints many more things than tutus!!!!  LOL!  Also . . .where did I go for my anniversary?
This is NOT me -
I did NOT say this -
and I did NOT go on the 'Murray' Povich Show!

Oooh, I feel your pain. I've been having trouble with my right hand swelling, and being painful for a couple months now. It's from overuse..too much time on the computer every day.

Luckily, I'm ambidextrous. So, I can use my left hand for the mouse and painting, and it's helping. But, Photoshop really kills me..all those photos I edit for Etsy and my blog. ugh. It's not long before my left hand is hurting as badly as the right. :/

One thing I tried is a vertical, handshake style mouse..it takes a lot of pressure off my wrist and hand. After a couple days, my hand had stopped hurting. The mouse lasted less than a week, tho, and I had to ship it back to Amazon. :/ I don't recommend Shark brand. I ordered a different brand, and it should be here soon. I can let you know how it goes, if you think it will help you out.

Saw these lovelies on FB. Thought I would drop a comment here to make it more, you know, official. :)

I do hope your hand gets better soon.

Sorry I'm late to wish you a wonderful anniversary! I hope you got that little gift you were waiting for...or something equivalent. I love the tutu demo and thanks for sharing your sweet paintings, even with your handicap. Take care, a big hug
