I wrote this portrait poem for Rex Hausmann, my neighbor in the studio next door at the Millworks. Rex is an incredible artist and a very encouraging and gentle person.
"Richard" - A Portrait Poem
Richard was an artist at the Millworks. I only met him this one time when Rex pulled him into my studio to write this portrait. Richard was living with advanced terminal cancer when I met him and died just a couple months after.
"Leila" - A Portrait Poem
Renee Hausmann pulled Leila into my studio one afternoon when I was working. Leila runs the arts program at the Ecumenical center and was curious about what I do. I decided the best description was a demonstration.
