And then on a Tuesday, your whole life changes. My mother got implants(teeth), followed by infections and the decay of her lower jaw. My life as a caretaker began in increments from this point forward. The University Hospital saved her life and did an amazing job rebuilding her beautiful face. I spent six months living in San Antonio during this process. This is the only painting from that period. I was helping find an apartment , furniture, food, drive, as well as maintaining my apartment in Austin, a house in Hunt and Austin. I do have a favorite stuffed animal from the hospital gift shop. She comforts me to this day.
