I've had the surgery on my left wrist, but I continue to have the same issues but not quite as much numbness.

Sheila, thank you for your encouragement about my art.  You are very kind.  I am only a beginner (been painting for about a year) and sometimes I worry that I am wasting my time.  Your story is inspirational!  That gives me hope that it really is never too late to pursue something you love.  I will keep trying.
