Mom enjoying watercolor painting

by mymothersbrain

Last week I got to spend some time with my mom before and after I traveled to her hometown of Las Nieves in the Mexican state of Durango. Prior to that I’d produced a video on the Alzheimer’s Association and in the process observed a Memories in the Making class at the association offices in Fort Worth. The students made some beautiful paintings during that class and I thought I’d see if Mom might enjoy painting. As soon as I demonstrated how to dip the brush in water and paint, then apply it to paper, she took it from my hand and did it herself. Here is a series of very quick snapshots of her painting.
