Patti’s Room
oil on wood, 8″ x 8″, 2018

I made this painting in the study of a woman who suffered from early onset dementia. She’s now living in a nursing home. As she was declining and still in her home she would clip images from magazines and other sources and she would tape them to door frames, doors, window frames and other wooden furniture. I was moved by her efforts to remind herself of who she was.
