Art and Beauty Tuesday--Ria Hills
I love how she uses separately painted blocks to illustrate both the fractured nature of Alzheimer's and the individuality of each resident.
When I first saw this painting, I felt I knew this woman--that's how much of her personality came through. When I found out she, like my own mother, suffers from Alzheimer's, I was even more drawn to it.
I found this painting on Daily Painters of Massachusetts. Hills also has some beautiful paintings on her own blog.
