I copied a previous post from my painting blog in to this one. 


New Work from Alzheimer Patients

I'd like to share some work done by the Alzheimer patients this week. 
Our topic was "still life" paintings. 
I brought two vases with flowers, some fruit, and some postcards of still life paintings.
This woman very diligently and quietly "copied" this image.
(It's of an acrylic painting by my friend Page Railsback.)
Barbara even put the chair in!  
Lorraine was a watercolorist on the Cape.
Look how she modeled the vase!

Bob told me he wasn't going to paint.
Then an aid told me he was into baseball.
We mixed up some blue and talked about what teams wear blue uniforms.
I told him to make a mark in each color for the teams that wore that color.
Orange was Baltimore. Red cardinals.
 Can you see how he made the green mark an "A"? 

This gal is just the happiest and agreeable of the bunch.
She "dances" the whole time she's there.
