My beloved elderly mother's condition has become precarious. We don't know if this is a short-term situation, or if the recent set of events will prove to be the beginning of permanent disability on her part. I had to leave my reportage illustration workshop yesterday, after just two days, to fly back and help my brother take care of her.
I'd looked forward with greatest anticipation to this workshop since last winter, but when duty phones, you take the call.
I'm leaving early tomorrow to drive to her hometown and the nursing home she's just been installed in. I'll be back and forth for a while, until (and if) her condition stabilizes.
So, here's a sketch from my first morning, pre-workshop, in Orlando.
This weekend I'll post some of what I did at the workshop. It was as stimulating and intense as I'd hoped it would be. There's another workshop offered this January, half in Brooklyn, half in Connecticut, which I plan now to attend. I will not let this goal go unmet!
