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.

Lost Feathers

"Detached Pride of the Peacock"
by Atlanta Marie Carrera

Lost Feathers

Pride of the peacock,
a brilliant display,
a lifetime of memories,
plucked slowly away.

We gather up feathers
to save in a jar.
We cry for lost beauty
of who they are.

The gift we've been given,
a glimpse underneath,
a soul pure and simple,
but just out of reach.
