Repost For The Buried Treasure over at Seth's Blog The Altered Page


This is a really a buried Treasure it is from 2009..One of first post when I started my Blog..I am still taking care of my Mom and it is still a blessing to have her with me..Even though her mind and memory is slipping away from her..Which makes me so sad and I am trying to treasure every moment of each thought she can still remember.
Thank you Seth for doing this again..It makes us look back and find all those treasures we have forgotten and also to see so many wonderful artists.  So if you have not been to his blog..Please do so you will be in for a treat.. http://www.thealteredpage.blogspot.com/
This piece I have done is a 9/12 on canvas.. It is done in all acrylic with a top coat of gloss varnish. The Title is called Shattered.. The reason because of the mind either due to disease or of age the pieces become shattered and the brain can not be repaired and become whole again. So it will always be a search. Looking for the pieces, small or large of  your life.

Today is the Day..
Explore.

Chère Katelen,
Je te remercie de ton passage sur mon blog. Je retrouve ici, la m^me sensibilité, la même intelligence de la vie, avec une sagesse qui t'honore. C'est sans doute ce qui transparait dans tes œuvres et reste le plus important.Je tenvoie toute mon amitié depuis la France.
Carpe diem.

What an amazing depiction of what it means to you to care for your mother. I too had to care for my mother... to the end... with her slipping away more each day. They're still the same person, the one you love with all your heart. Deep down she knows that you're caring for her.. as hard as it can be at times it will fill your heart later.

This disease is so hard on both the recipient and the caregiver. You have found a perfect post and the painting is gorgeous and beautifully represents photos I have seen of the brain filled with Alzheimer's.

Wonderful words to go with a 'wonderful' image. Treasured memories are always a good thing.
