Nice Shirt! 8" x10" watercolor on paper

I painted this one with black watercolor during one of the visits the Duxbury senior center makes to the museum with the early Alzheimer group- the pattern was on a shirt worn by one of the volunteers. They were painting, and I joined in.
There are patterns everywhere!
This week I attended the Boston premier of "I Remember Better When I Paint"
at Boston University.
It was a beautiful documentary about how art is beneficial to people living with
 Alzheimer's disease.

This is terrific Sally! My aunt has Alzheimer's but her sons won't get her the help she needs. I think a program like this would be hugely beneficial to her!! Thanks for sharing!!

Thank you Manon- I hope this helps- not sure if there is a program like this in your area- maybe you can start one! Its very gratifying to see people tapping into the creative, the present. I wish you luck with your aunt.
