Watercolor Station

I have slowly divided up my chaotic workspace into specific Work Stations. Here is where I make small watercolor paintings. I didn’t always love watercolor. What has recently pushed me toward it with a passion is a program called Memories in the Making. MIM for short.

Nancy, the amazing MIM Director at the Alzheimers Association in Milwaukee trains willing volunteers to work with people with Alzheimers disease to encourage them to paint. As they create pictures we engage in stories about their past. Every Friday afternoon I visit a MIM painting class at an assisted living home in my area. We dig for memories and have meaningful exchanges. Our little team (Megan, Katy, Taylor, and me) have so much fun!!!  It is the highlight of my week.

  1. I didn’t know you had a wp blog!?! I noticed it on the comment reply. I love your calendar sketches. Will you teach me to be an artist? I have ten thumbs and it will take four lifetimes, but I’m fun.

    1. I started this blog as an experiment. Nobody could respond to it because I spelled my link incorrectly. I just noticed the error and fixed it recently. And yes I’d love to teach you to draw 🤓
