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!

Step back once, go forward twice

I had to make a decision today -- not draw at all or drop back a few levels and at least do something. I chose the latter. I don't typically enjoy fast food restaurants but I was caught in between the two kids' groups I was facilitating and was twenty miles away from home. So Beulie and I stopped in and I drew for a few minutes and added the color after 10:00 when I was finally home. That's my last late Wednesday for six months, yeah! more time to draw!


  1. I like this layout format, and have been wanting to do something like this myself. Nice quick drawings, and I like the addition of the color.

  2. Thank you so much! Grids (for me) are a great jump-starter, especially when they are drawn ahead of time. - Barbara

  3. I love the expression you captured in Beulie's eyes. Such a sweet dog!

  4. Hi Linda -- She is the very best! - Barbara
