You always hurt the thumb you love

Not that anyone's reading this blog, because I haven't gotten it going really, but smashing my right thumb (I'm right handed) in my own car door a couple weeks ago hasn't helped matters. I fractured a bone and have been in a cast and splint since. I haven't been able to grip a brush, pencil or computer stylus well enough to work. Not being able to paint has bothered me the most. A still life I started is sitting there waiting for me to finish it. If persimmons could talk. But they seem to be holding up so far. If not, it'll be a painting of rotten persimmons.

Hi Again

Again, he says?

I sort of started this blog this summer but haven't had time to get it going. It seems nearly every artist has a blog now. And it also seems every artist and his brother is a "Daily Painter";  a relatively new phenomenon. I like that, and wish I could do it, but I don't have that kind of time, being a full-time Graphic Designer, although I was, and am a painter first. Speaking of time, I've been painting a long time. In fact, it was before color paints were introduced and we all had to work in black and white only.
So I was thinking I might (or might not) start a "Nightly Painter" movement.

New to this. Trying to figure it out.
