Could there be a more inspirational project than Glen Campbell's own final studio album, "Ghost On The Canvas", released in mid-2011?
From the archives of Glen Campbell Forums is an article written by music therapist Rachelle Norman for her blog for Kansas City elders and caregivers, Soundscape Music Therapy, dated November 7, 2011:

Glen Campbell’s Final Album: This Music Therapist’s Perspective
Just a few months ago, the world learned that long-time country star Glen Campbell has received a probable diagnosis of Alzheimer’s disease. Campbell is currently on his farewell tour, and he released his final album, “Ghost On The Canvas” at the end of August. This album includes several songs he co-wrote with the album’s producer, Julian Raymond, as well as songs written for him by Jakob Dylan, Paul Westerberg and Robert Pollard. When I heard about this album, I knew I wanted to listen to it. Glen Campbell is already popular among many of the folks I see for music therapy, and I thought it would be fascinating to hear the artistic work of a person who has been diagnosed with dementia – a person who is nearing the end of his career and facing a daunting disease process. “Ghost on the Canvas” did not disappoint.

Through these songs, Campbell sings messages that could be helpful for listeners who are in the early stages of dementia as well as listeners who are caregivers. The song “In My Arms” repeats the line, “keep it on the recent. Keep it on the now,” which is certainly good advice for people fearing what is to come from a disease process. In “Strong,” Campbell sings a message to which I imagine many people with dementia and caregivers could relate....

That's a great idea, Mike!
I wouldn't have thought about turning the "house" painting for a different look.
A "two-for-one"!

Just my opinion but I like the Old house picture best and can I also say that I think if it was turned 90 degrees clockwise I think it would look like a scene of a house by a lake in a valley. That is just how I see it of course. Both are very vivid I think.

The Art of Glen Campbell (from Facebook*):

As a follow-up to "The Art of Glen Campbell" video--link posted below--reproductions of Glen Campbell's first ever paintings will be available in various media for purchase in the future to help raise funds for Alzheimer's.

These are the first proofs of "giclees" on canvas, 20" by 20", created in the same size as the original paintings by Glen during an art therapy session.
The first proof (on the left) is titled "Am I Blue". The second proof (on the right) is titled "An Old House".

Music Rejuvenates Alzheimer's Patients: Researchers
Newsmax Health
August 30, 2015

"...a growing body of research show(s) music has extraordinary healing powers for dementia sufferers."

"The impact of music on Alzheimer’s patients was dramatically showcased in the new Glen Campbell biography, “I’ll Be Me,” which chronicles the progression of his Alzheimer’s over the past several years. Over the course of the film Campbell becomes less able to remember the lyrics of his songs in concert, yet his guitar playing remains razor-sharp in concert."

The full report is available at:
http://www.newsmax.com/Health/Brain-Hea ... id/672362/

The AARP article mentioned in this report ("The Healing Power of Music") can be viewed online at:
