I Remember You - SOLD

I recently was asked to paint a picture of a friend's father and I was so touched by the story and the reference photo.  The man in the photo is battling with the terrible disease of Alzheimer's.  This terrible disease makes it hard to remember recent events and can sometimes cause a person to feel disoriented and withdrawn.  There is no treatment that can stop or reverse its progression, though some may temporarily improve symptoms.  This gentleman loves his chickens and finds joy in their companionship.  I so hope this painting displays that and is a reminder that he is still the same man he always was.
