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!

Sunday, quiet Sunday

I thought it was very nice of the parish secretary to choose toned paper for the cover of today's bulletin! It's my favorite for plain black pen sketching and this morning I decided to try without any preliminary pencil drawing underneath. I didn't include Beulie this week, but she was asleep at my feet.

We hand Beulie back to Canine Companions for Independence in just 2-1/2 weeks so we're really counting down now. Demi has permission to take her place in the parish. Personally, I think everyone should bring any well-behaved dog with them, but I'm nuts that way.

One of my favorite memories was years ago, long before I was a dog lover myself, when I observed a homeless person in a Roman Catholic parish. It was a large church with center aisles that intersected in the middle of the congregation. He came in from the side, walked to the intersecting center, genuflected, and then PUSHED HIS DOG'S BUTT DOWN so he would genuflect too!

I have a stack of prepaid postcards waiting for my attention. No, I don't sit around all day drawing on these things but it is a fun way to doodle my way through the daily newscast. And the Flickr group is growing fast!

  1. This looks great! I love the bright colors you used. Maybe I'll start saving some of mine and try this, too.
