The wedding was in his back garden, a beautiful place, the weather cooperated and we had a wonderful time. Now on to art work.
We live in SC and she lives in NC. We visit as often as we can and stopped by on our way back to SC from the wedding. We brought her some wedding cake and showed her photos of the wedding.
When we arrived she was in the activity room painting. Visitors are always welcome to come in and visit when the patient works.
The activity director, Nita is so outgoing, she always has something funny to say to the patients and she finds ways to keep each one interested in what is going on.
I was so impressed with how she encouraged the patients. She gave them each a photograph printed on regular paper. The subject that day was a bird in a tree. Each one is given paint and brushes and encouraged to paint over the photograph. It is somewhat like coloring but the colors are already there. However, that didn't mean everyone used those colors. I didn't think until after we left the craft room to take photos so I don't have the ones of the birds.
These two paintings show how differently each person sees the flower.
