Meanwhile, I've been participating in Pat Clark's root project. Pat has been a powerful and unifying force in our local art community and I'm super fortunate to have become a part of that group. I didn't get the splint off my hand until Monday so signed up for a sketch time with her on Tuesday. That's because Pat is in hospice and sketch times with her are limited. We are sketching this root that was extracted from her yard and has been hanging in her garage for the past two years.
This is Pat's sketch. I gathered up my things to leave at the end of my session and she took me aside to wish me the best with my family and said, that when life had thrown her a curve, she had learned that the word she needed was "adjust." I treasure that piece of wisdom.
We have another artist in the family.
