Left Hand

Like me, David is left handed. He was ambiguous as a kid. His sister Jules was right handed immediately. She would patiently transfer the crayon to her right hand. David would use either hand. Like Da Vinci, David painted his hand – his right hand. It makes sense he used the brush in his left hand while he used the right as his model. He worked for a summer in Brownsville working on a community mural project. I went to the opening. I wonder if the mural is still there? if you should see it, that right hand painted on the wall is that of the artist himself.
