Wow, that's very impressive, Val! Have you taken drawing lessons before? I've drawn my hand many times in the past, and I think that's a pretty standard exercise for people because if you want to work from observation, it's the closest thing at hand, no pun intended. It's interesting to see what might look like a typical drawing exercise at a cursory glance, transformed into something with more personal meaning. The drops of blood are very poignant and striking, and it wasn't until I clicked to see it bigger that the bracelet, which I assume is a medical ID, registered with me. Overall, it's very well done, and as Lorraine said, powerful.

I'm thrilled that you participated in Diabetes Art Day, so huge thanks for joining with your wonderful drawing :)

Boy, isn't that the truth! Nicely captured, and I like the softness of the drawing. Diabetes definitely makes it hard to focus sometimes.
