My father-in-law has Alzheimer's. He's had it for quite a few years already and it is very possible he is in the later stages of this terrible disease. He came from a family of six children. All but one of them has been afflicted with with this disease. What I think is this possibly could mean my husband and my children could be at a greater risk for contracting this disease.
From all the research I have done I believe these photos of mine will help me paint and represent what happens in the brain of a Alzheimer's patient. As the disease progresses the brain cells degenerate and die, causing a steady decline in memory and mental function.
What are these photos and have they degenerated. Were they beautiful at one time just like my father-in-law. He still is valued and beautiful despite the disease and we need to see that same beauty in all creation. Stay tuned to this blog as I attempt to paint and support the fight for this disease. If you have any comments, questions or suggestions, please email me or leave a comment below.
