Florence Desrosiers-Thies is joining the effort of the Alzheimer’s association in participating in The Longest Day. The Longest Day is the day of the year with the most light — the summer solstice. And it's the day that She has committed to fight Alzheimer's Disease and help advance the care, support, and research efforts of the Alzheimer's Association.
In order to refine her skills, Florence will challenge herself in daily activities. She is starting a study series called Lasting Memories. Every day of the month of June she will complete a study on a subject of her choice and will have the painting available to the public for purchase. One painting a day leading to the longest day of June 21st.This is a challenge and it is all for a good cause.
Let’s join this fantastic journey and support the Alzheimer’s Association. The proceeds will be donated to the Alzheimer association.
THANK YOU to all of you for the support during my painting challenge. You all kept me motivated and every like, comment, message and follow on @floryfineart encouraged me to keep going. Alzheimer’s disease is a common cause of dementia and the emotional and economic toll it takes on victims and their loved ones is devastating. As #TheLongestDaycomes to a close, we have hope for a world without Alzheimer’s💜

" Immigration is rarely thought of as a woman's story. Women historically have accounted for almost fifty percent of immigrants in the United States and currently exceed that. Gender has influenced migrant women's choices to immigrate as well as their opportunities and challenges upon arrival. Immigrants of African descent have often the double expectation of building new communities while simultaneously maintaining the home country's culture and values in the new world. These women faces transmit the struggle, the pain as well as the freedom felt by many generations of immigrant women. Their experiences in America were very much like those of millions of other women who chose to make a new home in a new country."
Honored to be recognized by the Allied Arts Association in the state of Washington. With a group of regional artists, we illustrated the value and importance of women in American history, all women wether they are native to the USA or immigrants.
