"The Hands of an Artist" (or "How to Attract a Man in 5 Minutes or Less")
My hands. Feminine they're not, they're worker hands.
I'm not necessarily self conscious of them in public, but I do make an effort not to draw attention to them either. I love rings - have some really nice hand made ones - don't wear 'em very often though.
I've been working non-stop for the last two weeks preparing for an exhibition in downtown Vancouver with Lions Bay Art Gallery: constructing panels, working with plaster, soaking rags, cleaning dusty floors, carving, painting, mixing various chemicals and materials, scraping and so on (and on...) but these digits dig it!
When one of my friends or family say that I've got "the hands of an artist", I know it's coming from a good place... they love me :)
When someone else says it, I'm not exactly sure how to interpret it...
It doesn't really matter anyway... I actually clean up pretty good.
(My dear mom bought me a manicure gift certificate - I guess she knew exactly what I'll be needing!)
