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.

Light Among the Thorns

"Light Among the Thorns"
by Atlanta Marie Carrera

Light Among the Thorns

Sharp are the thorns
that catch you off guard.
Cuts that run deep
and bleed from your heart.

Carefully you move,
least you get scratched,
as you reach for the light
just out of grasp.

It flickers and jumps
in unpredictable ways.
but in the palm of your hand
it finds joy in our days.
