Collages

I love to do collages. I find I work without a plan and it just seems to come together. The bottom collage with Frida is a self portrait. Everything depicted has a special meaning to me. For example, the parrot is my sun conure Pinot who really is the king of our house, thus the crown. The Create Art collage was done more recently and acts as a reminder to me to keep doing. I have been on a semi hiatus due to hand surgery on my dominant hand and although I have been working with my other hand it hasn't been the same. My fine motor skills are coming back slowly and I am looking forward to regaining my skills and being able to create much better art again in the future. We'll just have to see what develops. Until next time I wish you peace, love & joy

Lisa, I hope you don't mind me asking but did you have carpel tunnel surgery? I have been putting it off for months and am not even sure that it is my problem.

Hi Robyn,
I don't mind you asking at all. No, it wasn't carpal tunnel surgery. I had to have reconstructive surgery, including thumb joint removal and some major tendon work due to being thrown to the floor by one of my students. I teach art to severely ED kids. Please make sure that your doctors are confident that it's carpal tunnel before they cut. Rehab is no fun.
