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!

I did my homework....sort of

I'm enrolled in Kate Johnson's online watercolor pencil class and, although we're only in the second of six weeks, I'm feeling behind already. Our assignment this week was to paint a landscape, not one of my strengths, so I panicked when I read that. I've been practicing drawing this little bridge for a couple months and have posted two earlier attempts. Here's my homework submisssion. I'm not happy with it, but I don't know how to improve it so I'm posting it too and turning it in to Kate. (long sigh)


  1. Progress, not perfection! Right?!!
    Glad you are still feeling well and am BLOWN AWAY by your 2008 goals. And the public posting of your progress. I may get the nerve to do something similar. thanks for the good example.

  2. Hey there, don't get too excited about my goals - it's February and I'm already 1-1/2 months behind!! Thanks for writing. - Barbara

  3. Hey! We have the same goal! Okay, I admit, I copied yours. I thought it was a great goal, and one I am happily rolling along with.
    AND *shaking finger, looking stern* don't give yourself a hard time during learning mode.

  4. Hi Col -- Hope it's OK but I added your blog to my link list. -- BB
