Painting in Progress


It’s been 4 months since Tom completed a painting. He is still recovering from his surgery, and trying to regain the motor skills necessary to paint. I was thrilled when he sent me this painting in progress! -SF

He said: “This is a painting I’m trying to do. It’s a bridge going over the River Thames (London). The Houses of Parliament are on the other side. On the far right is someone playing the bagpipes. On the left is me taking a video of him.”

Tom – I have always been amazed at the way you do shapes, and they turn into a beautiful painting! I love your use of shadow and light!

Looking good! So glad to see you painting again, and that the painting is so very “you”. It will be fun to see what it looks like when it is finished!

Hi Tom! It’s your RHI speech therapist checking up on you! I found the drawing you did of me in therapy while cleaning up my desk at home and thought I’d visit your site. I LOVE the unfinished painting already! You captured the swing of the lady’s step perfectly! Great work–keep it up.

@Mary Beth Powers:
Hi Mary Beth! What a pleasant surprise to hear from you! Thanks for your comment. Also, thanks so much for the help you gave me when I was a patient at RHI. You made a hard time so much more pleasant and I really enjoyed working with you. Norene and I have talked about you a lot.
