broken wrist blues

Just about 2 weeks ago I took a tumble in a parking lot and smashed my wrist. It was an impressive crashing and smashing.  After some surgeries  I now have a bionic wrist, a wrist brace,  a fair amount of pain and swelling, and an outright impatience to get back to painting..

But since it was my right wrist, sharp, tight, realistic work will NOT be happening soon. Last week, I tried doing some doodles with my left hand. Not terrible, but not quite what I was envisioning. Then today I saw an online tutorial by Jane Davies  on doing 15 min. really lose abstract painting. I could do that with my right hand I think!
