The first day back in the studio after a significant absence. Cleaning and organizing, then on to working.

The last three weeks of my mother's life she could not communicate verbally. In an attempt to understand what she wanted I made this alphabet chart for her to point at to spell words. I also had a number of commands written out as well. They proved rather useless, as even her ability to read seemed compromised.

I had some time, finally, to work on my own art and to take a small break. I have not had a moment off since December 1.
I am missing her quite a bit, in a quiet way, today.

First day back drawing from life after almost 3 months of caring for my mom and all of the obligations after her death. Absolutely terrifying but necessary. I am never satisfied with my ability to draw, all I see are its flaws, but that is what pushes me on every day to play more and understand more.

Going incognito.

I am driving back with many personal effects of my mother this weekend. I am considering wearing the wig she had purchased at one point in time, that she never wore because she looked too beautiful with short hair after the radiation. A private performance of sorts as I bring her ashes back home with me before bringing them back to Dallas for a final scattering. One of the many items of her battle that I hold dear.

Now look, I know it's a hand but this had to be a bit of an inside joke on the part of the sculptor. Back in Texas, taking care of business.

Pretty soon this could be fake news too.
