I brought Ed Gulley some canvases and paint, he wasn’t crazy about the paint, he decided to sketch. We are now bringing him some sketchpads and Carol got him some colored pencils yesterday. He started drawing a pig in the barn, and then stopped to rest. This is his first sketch.
I can see the artistry in Ed already, he is an artist as well as a dairy farmer. His creativity has connected us to Ed as well as his big heart and larger than life presence. I am happy to be the man he calls his best friend.
I’m bringing him more and bigger color pencils Monday, I’m eager to see where Ed takes his skills. You can follow his life and his experience with brain cancer on his blog, the Bejosh Farm Journal.
