dad could do this

Many of you know that my Dad had a massive stroke a year and a half ago. He is doing amazingly well. He is walking. And drawing. And back to many of his regular day to day routines. Last time I visited he was still incredibly frustrated that he couldn't use his right hand or arm. Before the stroke his day job was being an attorney. But his passion is art. And he is an incredible artist. I featured his eggs on S+C the week of his stroke. He is still able to draw and paint with his left hand. But he would love to put down on paper (and eggs and wood and whatever else he can find) exactly what his mind sees. Despite the fact that his artwork is gorgeous, the perfectionist in him just can't cope with second best. So he is working on that right arm. And we keep praying that more miracles happen.

Your dad sounds like an inspiration and my kind of guy/lawyer. His work is amazing! I hope he is fully mended soon.
