So, if you are still with me, that's where's I've been. I am in a much better place now! The nerve in my hand is coming back, slowly (I've been told it can take up to a year). I have been in physical therapy now for 4 1/2 weeks and have made incredible progress. I do exercises at home 3x a day for 40 minutes each time. It's a lot of time, but I am committed to it. I want my hand back and functioning! My surgeon tells me it will be a full year before it's all the way back, so I have a lot more therapy to go, but I'll get there.
As far as my art goes, I still haven't been able to tangle, but I am hoping that will be soon. My surgeon tells me it will be very good therapy for my hand, like I didn't know that! LOL! I am still painting with my alcohol inks. I discovered so many techniques for working with the inks, received so much inspiration, and encouragement to take my art to the next level, as a result of the class I took. I created a website (on my own), updated my business plan, and I am starting to market my work. I kept my business name of Tangled Ink Art, since it fits both the pen & ink of Zentangle, and the Ink of Alcohol Inks. If you'd like to take a look at my website and my artwork, I'd be very grateful! WWW.TANGLEDINKART.COM
Also if you are on Instagram, I just created a page under TangledInkArt where I will be posting all of my work, so I love for you to follow me!
If you go to my RedBubble store (link on my website) please follow me there too!
P.S. I have missed all of you in the Zentangle blogging world and I am sorry I haven't been able to keep up with your blogs! I can't wait until I can join all of you in a DIVA challenge again!
