Materials/Techniques: Background is rusted Rust-Tex fabric donated by Lois Jarvis. Horses are from a commercial fabric, painted with Matte Medium, then cut out and top-stitch appliquéd after the background was quilted.

Artist's Statement: I believe Alzheimer “patients” are pioneers making inroads into a multidimensional “way of living”, and may have lost their way, as some pioneers and explorers in our world history have done. I honor their courage to be the first, exploring the jungle of confusion and leaving an easier path for those of us who will follow this particular path of human evolution without getting lost.

Dedication: To my maternal grandmother, who had Alzheimer’s.
