I have been working on a little hand inspired by a Filipo painting and also have done little studies of my son's hand. There is something poetic about hands in paintings and sculpture and I personally love drawing them. Recently I went to the Legion of Honor to do studies of the Rodin hands which was fun, except when people walked up--it makes me feel self conscious.
In addition to these odd little hands I have been going through all my one of a kind materials, alluvial diamonds and stones. I have not had a chance to use these much lately and being in that zone has been really gratifying, grounding and fun. I look at time spent 'drawing, dreaming and making' as time spent on a lifelong practice. It is like my 'Tai Chi" and I am looking forward to someday getting that black belt.
