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!

While watching TV

We watched the ABC-TV special on the British royals this evening with Barbara Walters narrating. I was scanning the room for something to draw and noticed poor Parisse, resting her head on an arm chair and watching the program with us. She isn't feeling her best these days, she has another nasty ear infection. I've been applying antibiotic goop twice a day, something she hates but tolerates. I love Micron pens and simple lines but I wish I'd gotten the perspective better.


  1. Such a beautiful little drawing!

  2. Thank you, Shelly. Parisse is feeling better today. - Barbara
