Old Friends

During my time at Bonell Good Samaritan Center as an Art Therapist, I was fortunate enough to spend some quality time with the folks there. Some of the residents were confined to wheelchairs, others were just eager to talk to someone who would listen... I thought the families of the residents might enjoy having a drawing of their loved ones, and residents could tell me about their lives, and I could do some life drawing...it was a win for everyone.
The drawings here are scanned photocopies, the original went to the residents and families. These were done in 2004, graphite on bristol vellum. There are many more drawings floating around, some I didn't get photocopies of at the time, but these are some of my favorite.

these drawings are awesome and I think they say a lot about the people they are of! Keep drawing! And cool that the old were remembered!
