Purple & Gold

This series was created with watercolor using only two colors, Purple and Gold. I selected purple as the color representing Alzheimers and related dementias. Gold is used to symbolize the person who is battling the disease. Dedicated to my loving husband and all the wonderful memories we share.

Blooms in a Tangled Vine

"Blooms in a Tangled Vine"
by Atlanta Marie Carrera
Blooms in a Tangled Vine

Peeking out from tangled vines,
a flower's bloom which sometimes shines,
tightly held with no escape,
trying to grow, but locked in place.

A daily struggle to be seen,
a fight for freedom in between,
without direction, growing wild,
being treated like a child.

Nurtured by the gardeners touch,
watered by our tears of love,
wild beauty in its natural state,
connected by a living grace.
