Parkinson’s Window

I felt compelled to paint an eye; the eye of a person with Parkinson’s Disease. This is the window from which a person with Parkinson’s looks out and sees the beauty in the simple aspects of life.

Solo: Sweet Dreams

This iconic song, with the captivating melody, was so much fun to record.

It was 2019 and my cousin Debbie had come to stay with Kevin and I. It’s not uncommon for us to just fall into the most ridiculous, uncontrollable giggles! This was one of those times.
