Paint Party Friday - the farm

I visited my client. When his wife arrived home, chauffeured by her son, she told me, as she does every time I visit, that she used to paint canes and began selling them. She cannot anymore, due to her Alzheimer's she told me. Again. Bess her heart. I simply nodded and listened as if she'd told me this story for the very first time. She's such a dear. I had a lovely time sketching while my client slept.
Medium: coloured pencils and Isabelle's thin, erasable, felt markers!

PPF




On Monday, I was asked to replace an absent volunteer at our local Dignity House Day Hospice program. It is a day away program for those living with life limiting illnesses. There, we made some Christmas swatches while the Complimentary Therapist gave clients a massage.

I'm sure you also benefit from your visits, and the family should surely appreciate your time there. Have a great weekend, Jean.p.s. almost a heat-wave. 25C this afternoon!!!
