sm colorful death of a dream

As many of you know, my husband suffers from Alzheimer’s. Actually that form of dementia allows him to be completely unaware of his diminished capacities, I and those who love him are the ones who suffer.

All this year since he has moved from our apartment and into skilled care I have been busily figuring out who I am. I’ve been rediscovering my love of art.

I set up my apartment as a studio. The paintings are just about taking over the space. I’m working on this blog and getting ready to start selling my art.

A day or so I was told that he is moving to the next stage of his disease. That means he’s loosing more of his bodily function. I’m quite saddened.

My painting is taking a rather dark turn. And I’ll likely be taking a break from both the painting and the blogging.

Please leave me comments if you have been through this with any of your loved ones. especially if you have any good thoughts to share.

A year ago I scheduled a respite week for myself, anticipating that I would need a break. All in God’s perfect timing. I will be away for the next 10 days or so.

Hopefully I return energized and to good news on my husband’s condition.

and that I’m ready to paint again.
