When a talented elderly artist suffers a stroke, she has to learn to paint all over again.

When Mary Cane-Honeysett, a talented elderly artist living alone in London, suffers a stroke, she develops tremors in her hands that prevent her from holding a paintbrush steady. Depressed that she can no longer paint with the same tight, detailed style for which she has become known, she gives up art entirely. Struggling with the after-effects of her stroke, Mary also faces the problem of maneuvering around her house, which has become unmanageable in her physical condition. Brushstoke, airing Thursday, October 26 at 5 p.m. on WXXI-TV, follows Mary’s journey as she confronts new challenges, restarts her life, and tries to put paint back on the canvas.
