This photo was taken of my mother when she was about 90 years old. One day while visiting her I just wrapped my red scarf around her neck and snapped her photo. She had Alzheimer’s and passed away a couple of years after this photo was taken. In the original photo there was a lot of shadow on her face. As I was creating this piece I was going to eliminate those shadows but then decided against it. It makes me think of how the Alzheimer’s creates such a shadow over the lives of everyone it touches. This piece is about 24″ x 36″.
