i think of Andrew’s quiet good will. So sad to discover our friend has died.
He was with us in Dementia Mentors’ video chat a week ago today,
and i have a group photo on my desk that i was going to mail to him today ((sad tears)).
Instead i have prepared this collection of Links for some of Andrew’s projects:

Twitter is extra-difficult for me, so i rarely go there.
Did not see until now that Andrew has a Twitter account with some of his artwork there.
Andrew’s intro on Twitter says
love my movies and resolution to go paperless.

I took up art following a diagnosis of dementia and have found this a great help in my wellbeing.
I find that painting is very calming and I can retire to my shed and paint.
Thanks to my tutor I have gained experience in different medias including pastel, watercolour, graphite and charcoal.
Over the past 2 years my art collection has grown and following a chat with the tutor I was talked into showing my work.
I hope you enjoy.
I would love to hear your comments good or bad
This is one of my favorites from Andrew’s work on Twitter.
Would love to get permission to add this and several others to pages attached to his index on this webspace
