Evolution of a drawing by Roar Thorsen. The old man knows what he’s doing! #arttherapy

My father amazes me.  Despite being wheelchair bound and dependent on care aides for daily needs, he is empowered by art.  Today he even called to say he didn’t have time for a visit as he had to finish a sketch!  Amazing!

His process is fascinating.  I have learned to trust he has a vision despite my  sadness at times when he changes a sketch!  It’s HIS creative process and I’m trying to log the changes that he makes as the journey to the finished piece fascinates me.

Here’s the latest- where he struggled with a profile and glued white paper to allow for alterations [which adds so much to the look].
