Thursday Watercolor Memories

These last few weeks have been tough.  My husband's Mother is afflicted with Alzheimer's disease and can no longer be cared for in her home.  We will be moving her to a facility close to us in a couple of weeks.  A new chapter begins and we are hoping for a peaceful transition.  Fortunately, we were able to secure a place for Mom at the facility where I teach painting classes to seniors.  Lots of pluses with that.

On another note:  I know my time working with each senior artist is limited.  Limited by their wellness or not and their life journey.  I treasure the time I have with each one and it is sad when they pass on.  We lost 2 artists in April - precious folks, precious times - they are now resting.
Take good care of yourselves, deborah

  2. Your recounting of this time in your life and in the lives of those you care about is very touching. The human condition, especially in the sunset days, is often filled with deep emotions--a testament to your compassion and humanity.
