Dennis Does Sculpture


Today, Dennis and I worked with puzzle blocks.
He does this kind of work when he is downstairs in the rehab room, but we added some good conversation while he figured out how to mate the blocks together.
Part of the discussion today centered around "patience".
It is difficult to understand, with my health brain (or at least I think it is healthy), what amount of healing it will take to fix Dennis's broken brain. It is confounding just how articulate Dennis is right now with lengthy discussions on serious topic... which then, regrettably, triggers my expectations of him.
I resist making "Child" references related to Dennis, but it helps me when I need to remember that I did not expect my then 4 year old to act like a 6 year old! Well! At least for two more years! "Patience"

"Outside The Studio" 001

10" X 10" Acrylic on Gesso'ed Paper

My blog title today includes 001 which states with some optimism, that I will indeed reach a triple figure. My friend Alex gave me 480 sheets of paper for Christmas, that is how optimistic he is! 
I do enjoy not having a ridge artistic life and I am able to flow with new and interesting projects and events, but I also respect that if you are to achieve that "higher level" it takes tenacity and "stick-to-itivness"!  
The landscape around my house and studio, (5 miles away) are at their prime right now (between Thunderstorms) and I do not need to get in a car to travel to any other amazing spot, actually I believe that even if I were locked up in prison I could find something interesting in the dust in the corner of the cell, but on such a beautiful day why go there!

I am off to NYC in an hour and I am bringing the paints so maybe I will get a couple of new painings out of Central Park.
