Another project that came forth from my injury was the idea of using my left hand to create.I decided to use a vintage scrapbook that I got from Cait Sherwood and use it as a left handed paint journal. No pressure, no need for it to be nice or interesting. The only restraint was that I only use my left arm. I call it Left to My Own Devices.

The results are super freeing. I sometimes added collage, sometimes not. In all cases, I reconnected with my paints and it felt good to explore and see what could come out of this experiment. You can see all my pieces under the hashtag #lefttomyowndevices.
