On 01.02.02, I was diagnosed with metastatic breast cancer. Too late for surgery, I had chemotherapy, which failed. In May the chemotherapy was changed and I was soon in remission which was celebrated and welcome and lasted nine years - until October 2011. There was progression in 2011 so more treatment was indicated and I am now back in partial remission. But I'm not only a cancer patient - I also enjoy my family, walk my dogs and am learning to draw and paint. Life is good!

Barbara paints fruit bowls

Well, I used watercolor pencils to paint my first bowl of fruit. It was sitting out on the dining room table beckoning to me, Draw me, draw me. You can probably figure out the apple and banana. The others are apricots, one of my favorite fruits, oh yum.

  4. Your fruit is wonderful, I especially love the banana. They are such lifesavers when I get a leg cramp, I want to kiss them. The apple is really well done too, and I imagine the apricots are too. I'm just not as familiar with the fresh ones.

    I'm away from home and way behind on things, but I loved your bell too. Beautiful colors!
