Unforgettable Art 2010


Today I received the great news that I have been selected to be one of 50 artists who will create our art on site for Unforgettable Art, an annual fundraiser for Alzheimer's. Ever since I learned of this event from fellow artist and blogger, Janet Nelson, I have been interested in participating. Janet will be participating again this year and I'm looking forward to meeting her.

Alzheimer's Disease has touched my family - both my father and his mother. It would have been Dad's birthday this week and it is fitting that my acceptance letter would come today.

I chose the above photo for this post because there are so many jet trails among the interesting clouds in the sky. Being a farmer, the weather played an important role in Dad's livelihood. He pointed out different clouds and jet trails to us. Even when Alzheimer's had a firm grip on him, he was still interested in jet trails.

Please check out the link to read more about this worthy cause. Thank you.

This is so awesome! Congrats.
I have a dear friend who is helping her mother-in-law work on an art journal. Her MIL has Alzheimers. She signed her name in the journal. My friend said it will most likely be the last signature of hers that they have. What a treasure.
