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.

"Heart of Gold" - in Search of Spirit

Our entry is designed to illustrate the inner struggle of a mind being overcome with memory loss.  Each painting on the tree "hides" a poem (on the reverse side) which explores our "Search of Spirit."  Through this journey, we are enlightened in ways we never imagined.

 "Heart of Gold" is dedicated to my loving husband and the many memories we have made over the years. 
Dementia (represented in purple) grows slowly; entangling one's mind, but one's soul; their inner spirit (represented in gold), remains hidden deep within.
