Painting through pain

I have not been painting lately due a pinched nerve in my shoulder that prevents me from lifting my right arm up without experiencing excruciating pain and numbness in my right hand and fingers. Since  I paint large works on canvas not a lot as been done. I take the pills the doctor gave me and they do not work. At least not good enough. The call to create, however, cannot be ignored, so I attempted to do some small pieces where I would not have to raise my arm. These are by far not my best works, but I needed to paint. So, now I'm off to bed. Goodnight!
