My Journey Towards Healing #onearmedart

Written by Kathy Davis Studios. Posted in Joy Through Art


Some of you may be aware that I had surgery in early January to help repair a broken clavicle.  Now with a titanium plate and screws holding my shoulder together, the worst is behind me as I move through a 12 week rehabilitation. With use of only one arm and need for lots of rest, my world has changed rather drastically.

To help entertain myself, I started using my iPhone to record images that were capturing my attention. With more time on my hands, I have become increasingly mindful and observant of my surroundings.  My home, deck and views from my window of the winter landscape provide my subject matter. Suddenly, everything has become visually fascinating to me. Color, patterns, shadows, compositions, in both natural and man-made forms, are like little paintings that speak to me.

What started as a simple amusement has grown into a tool for my healing.  My one armed art photo journal is a creative outlet, a form of expression and a way for me to stay engaged with the outside world.
