Cristina used to love to paint. When she was in her 20s she would do paint by numbers with her eldest daughter. It was something that was calming for her to do during that time. Now she is back to painting again but she would sometimes forget to add water to her water colors, so we add the water onto her paints to help her. As her Alzheimer’s progresses, painting seems to frustrate her. She can only sit and do one painting before she is done. If given another page to paint she gets upset. It’s no longer the calming moment it once was for her.
