Remember this, when you step over my door sill, you’ve been raised. You know the difference between right and wrong. Do right. Don’t let anybody else raise you and make you change. And remember this, you can always come home.’

Painted a t-shirt.

Tried my hand at painting a t-shirt took me awhile but I like how it turned out. The shirt is for an annual girls night me and two of my best friends Erika H. and Arianna F. have every year in November. We've done it for the past six years now.

Patients with Brain injurys art work.

By Harrison S.

Art made by individuals whose brain injury primarily affects one hemisphere is often characterized by crowding half the surface while ignoring the balance. Harrison, whose background was in theater and opera, tended to ignore the left side of his paintings which corresponded to his paralysis. By my nagging him about the left corners of his paintings, he grudgingly addressed the left sides. Good-naturedly nicknaming me "Floyd", I occasionally would hear his bellowing, baritone voice call out to me from the far end of the hall, "Hey Floyd, what about those 'freakin' corners?"

Medication eased his pain and made him drowsy; art was his medication for energy and rehabilitation. It revved his motor and ignited his cantankerousness, enabling him to confidently mount assaults on canvases with brilliant outcomes in the form of portraits and landscapes. In his portrait of a soulful Christ, with excellent corners, Harrison powerfully expresses suffering and redemption - hope.

I stumbled across this website it's a rehabilitation center for people who have suffered brain injury's it's called Northeast center for special care. They use art as part of the rehabilitation process, they share the patients art on their web site and I like this one by Eric F. Not bad for some one who is recovering from a brain injury.

Art gifts

This is a wooden tool box I picked up from a second hand store when I am done painting, it will be filled up with baby items and then gifted to one of my best friends Erika.

This one is pretty self explanatory.

The finished product I call it the girl with the pearl. It's a modern version of the girl with the pearl earing by Vermeer.

Some thing was just not right about her face here so I rearranged it a little and gave her eyebrows.

This one took me 8 hours I hope the next ones I do are quicker but I really don't care I really enjoy the process! Here is the first of many to come.
