This is Birdie No. 2 in my series within the Sinistra series. I am fulfilling my 2010 goal of painting a series. Then another, and another. The Sinistra series was not a choice; that little opportunity for greatness was thrust upon me. I can now touch my index finger to my thumb on my right hand, and that is progress. It has no strength, but it gets better all the time. We should all take time to thank God for his great invention, the Opposable Thumb.
