HOWEVER.... I did get my mitts on these two...
I've only glanced through them so far, but OH.... the conversion possibilities that await. I'm almost a bit giddy.
So, for now, the plan is to get back at the painting table on Monday, until them its Netflix, laptop and books. Maybe some doodling. On the outside, things are healing nicely, but there's still a lot of healing on the tendons. It'd be so much easier if I could do hobby stuff. Then again, my wife likes to remind me how totally useless I'd be if it had been my right hand. Always a silver lining.
Bonus reference picture.... which I pilfered from google
