I’ve been dealing with a tore muscle for the past two weeks. Don’t know how it happened. For the first few days, I wasn’t able to do much of anything. I had to even call out of work.
The only thing I was able to do a lot of is sketch and paint. It sounds ironic since my arm is messed up but thank goodness it’s my right arm that’s bad; my dominant left hand is doing well and has gotten me through so much.
I never knew how important my pectoralis muscle was until now. I couldn’t even lie down without muscle tension and spasms. Ugh! It’s the worst pain since pinched nerves. But luckily, the pain is less intense than before.
I think it’s what I needed to go into full artist mode. Without function in my shoulder, I could only sit down and paint. Here are some of my paintings.
