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!

Modern pears

Apparently I'm going through my Modern Period. Last night, in my pastel class, I worked on a project that the instructor described as very "modern." Then today, in my watercolor class, a student looked at my depiction of these pears and said, "It looks modern." Oh, I'm developing a style!
