Remember is another painting from My Parents series. I painted this image of my mother about a year before she died. She sat on the edge of her bed staring off into space with a look of vague contemplation, as if remembering something in the distant past. Perhaps she was searching for a memory, something that became more and more difficult as her dementia increased in the last years of her life. I called this painting Remember, though a better title might be ‘Trying to Remember’.
