One of the several projects in progress in my studio is a series about memory loss. This piece is unfinished, but so far includes screen print, hand printing, drawing and encaustic.
The primary visual element is a dying poinsettia, used symbolically. During what would be my Mom's last holiday season, I gave her a huge red poinsettia. She loved it and thanked me for it daily. It always puzzled me - she never forgot who gave it to her but could never remember if she'd acknowledged the gift.
