A Calm Desert Sun
“A Calm Desert Sun” by Dontay B.
Dontay is a sensitive, twenty six year old man from New York City who works through challenges from ataxia, speech and cognitive issues as a result of a brain injury from a motor vehicle accident. Dontay was an athlete before his injury. He had no experience making art as a youth.
The Art Studio drew Dontay in as a curious observer, but it took a long time before he was ready to put pencil to paper. Little by little he took the exploratory steps. As a butterfly coming out of a cocoon, he began to realize that he too could create wonderful images and sculptures. A Calm Desert Sun exemplifies a subtle early painting.
