    The Masterful Hand Thread

    So Donato Giancola posted a really GREAT blog post on hands...and it got me thinking that it would be cool to get a whole thread of different artists' interpretations of hands. His post is here:
    http://muddycolors.blogspot.ca/2012/...ing-hands.html

    So just post any paintings or drawings of hands that you particularly admire--don't forget to say who painted it! I'll start (I would repeat a bunch of Donato's examples...but that seems like a waste when you can just click on the link).
