Tell Hicks Paints Again!
Facebook - We are thrilled to hear that Tell Hicks is heading home after a year in the hospital and that he is painting once again!
From Tell: “My first real illustration, produced here at the spinal unit. GRANITE NIGHT LIZARDS. At last, I’m finally heading home, after almost a full year in hospital. My injury has left me paralyzed from the upper chest down, but thankfully I have some limited movement in my arms and a slight grip between my right thumb and forefinger (just enough to hold a paintbrush).
I must thank all of the wonderful hospital staff, my friends and family and, of course, my amazing wife Eileen for getting me through this. I, also, owe a huge debt of thanks to all of my friends on Facebook. Your encouragement and generosity has been overwhelming. THANK YOU.”@ Facebook
