I went to the hospital last Friday to get my cast off my broken arm. I had been completely sure I'd be almost fully functioning again....I'd even told a friend I'd see her at the gym today. So when the doctor started deliberating if they were going to operate and started mentioning things such as mis-alignment, early onset arthritis, possible fusing of my wrist etc I had a little panic!! Anyway, the outcome is they aren't going to operate as it may actually make things worse but I have four more weeks in a splint and have to try and use my arm even less. Four more weeks without driving which is a bit of a pain but I am enjoying the walking. (I'm not even allowed to run still).
So today I decided to try a little painting ... something that was light and easy to move and didn't require a lot of sanding. I have only primed it so far but am happy to be back doing what I love.
This little table is very gorgeous with lovely wood but quite marked and the wood on the table top is actually a different colour to the legs (I think a bad staining job, rather than different wood).
I'm not sure if I should be painting with my arm but I am going a bit mental not being creative.
Check back later this week for the finished piece. I'm still not 100% sure what colour I'll paint it. I'll have to check what nice paints I have in the shed.
