My day started with a talking and physiotherapy session at the Rehabilitation Unit at the wonderful City Hospital, Nottingham. My right shoulder continues to be stiff and I’ve got a sore bicep and general pain all down the right arm, This is annoying as I’m left handed and it’s more than likely connected to the PD.

I’ve never done a demo like this before, but managed to create another robin painting within the time.  It was smaller than my last robin painting, but similar in style using acrylic paints on canvas.
