Working Hands

- by Gail L Richards

This week's theme: Hands

We start the week with our 15th and final member that was accepted into EBSQ Juried Artist for the Spring jurying session. Congratulations, Debbie! If you are interested in seeing the work of the other members accepted to EBSQ Juried Artists, please see the last two weeks of Art Of The Day.

The rest of the week will be devoted to hands. When you lookup 'hands' at, there are 18 dictionary entries. That sounds lengthy, but when you include all the definitions for hand as a noun, verb and adjective as well as the phrases and idioms, you begin to realize that as a word "hand" is no simple thing. For our purposes, we are going to stick with the first definition for hand as a noun.

hand /hænd/
- noun
1. the terminal, prehensile part of the upper limb in humans and other primates, consisting of the wrist, metacarpal area, fingers, and thumb.

Art: Working Hands by Artist Gail L Richards
These are the hands of an aquaintance who works tirelessly on paintings and needle craft. She is an inspiration to me.
