EDM April 25, the artist's hand
This is a drawing of my hand steadying the book while I work in it. I wear two rings since Handsome Partner died, his and mine. His is bigger so I keep it behind mine so as to keep them both on my hand. In this case I'm drawing with my right hand, but there's no reason not to draw with the other. If you never tried drawing with your nondominant hand, you might be surprised at how well you do. It's not the hand that draws, it's the eye.
