Russell Yohn caught my attention shortly after U.S. Congressman Joe Walsh had finished his “Senior Forum” at the Heritage Woods affordable assisted living community that BMA manages in South Elgin, Illinois.
Given that the focus of the forum was on what is happening in our nation’s Capitol, he wanted me to see “The Good Country Emblem” that he had created.
The words he used to describe a Good Country are as follows:
Who help to keep it so
By each one doing one’s part
As one’s actions do count.
I thought that you would be interested in seeing his creation as well as some of the other handiwork that he showed me as we sat and talked in his studio apartment at Heritage Woods of South Elgin.
Russell painted scaled-sized images of our world on plastic eggs. With all the attention to Global Warming, the one that I found the most fascinating was the version that shows how much land was covered by glaciers during the last Ice Age. He painted the Ice Age view onto a L’eggs pantyhose container.
He also enjoys working with geometric shapes (as shown above).
“BMA Management is the leading provider of affordable assisted living in Illinois
and one of the 20 largest providers of assisted living in the United States.”
