"LEFT-HAND LILLIES" new Oil Painting by Mike Callahan

"Left-hand Lillies"
28" x 22"
Oil on Canvas
I couldn't help painting during my recovery from shoulder surgery, but I obeyed the doctor's orders (and my pain!) and didn't use my right hand. On my easel is a painting I call, "Left-hand Lillies" and I painted it entirely with my left hand. By the way, I'm not the least bit ambidextrous!
I've posted it online; you can see a larger version of it here...enjoy!
