Blended appliqué.Artist's Statement:
Alzheimer's touched my life. My father-in-law lived with us the last three years of his life before we were forced to seek nursing home placement. One of my my poignant memories occurred when I went to the nursing home to feed "Ed" after leaving work on 9/11/2001 and although the world changed in an immeasurable way that day for the rest of us, the residents were listening to Lawrence Welk while eating dinner, in oblivion.Dedication:
For my sweet, loving father-in-law,James "Edward" Rigsbee
