J.S. prefers to remain quiet in the back of our adult day center's living room. Each day he removes his colored pencils from his bag along with his ruler and draws from photographs and puzzle boxes the images that seem to catch his eye. It is not that he just a good artist but that he has only been drawing like this since his life-changing event.
J- is a man of many talents, past and present. Drawing has become his passion now, and while communicating is difficult; he now lets his art speak for himself. If he sees something that he likes and wants to make it more interesting he just draws it.
I recently posted on my blog a story, The red skinny house (pic on left). I asked J- if he would draw it and he envisioned the house sitting on the water.
J- has kindly granted me permission to share some of his works.
Thank you J-, a true renaissance man, for your art, your friendship and your inspiration reminding us that creativity is alive in us at any age and in any stage of our lives.
To connect with J- and leave him a message on his works we'd love to hear from you....
