“We can complain because rose bushes have thorns, or rejoice because thorns have roses. “Alphonse Karr (1856)
I had the pleasure of painting in the Plaza of Baylor hospital in downtown Dallas today.
As I painted I experienced so beautiful it took me a minute to place what it was. It was a cello, warming up.
The cellist was just out of my view, but his music blessed my painting, and the lives of those passing through one of the busiest corridors of Baylor hospital today.
I am so grateful to be part of the Arts and Medicine program. I bet I talked to a hundred people today as I painted. I am touched an amazed by how many people talked to me and shared stories of the artists they have know to their diagnosis.
