Drawing a Face
This February marks the 1st anniversary of my surgery on my left arm to save it after my lupus had caused paralysis in my left arm/hand. Unfortunately I am left handed. The surgery saved me from loosing anymore muscle mass, but only restored feeling in my first two fingers. I had to learn how to do many things with my right hand. I taught myself to write again using my left hand without the feeling in it, and this is my first attempt to draw with my left hand since all of this happened. I tend to bare down more since I can’t feel the pencil. All in all I am please to be able to even attempt to draw at this stage. I still need to work on my mind to muscle coordination, but I know with time it will get easier.
