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!

Still here

I've been drawing daily and have continued working but I don't have any completed pages to upload...yet. In our mixed media class we've been doing some printing, I think it's called xerographic printing, and it's been a major project for all of us to learn. Fussy and tedious too!

Next week we begin cutting our own linoleum prints and I'm looking forward to that because I can do it with much less equipment and it's more familiar territory. And I'm continuing to finish parts of pages in my 100-page class project that I keep referring to.

In the meantime, I also had a CT scan last week and the results were wonderful! I'm still in remission, such a relief. With that behind me I can stampede forward and get some pages drawn and blogged. That's the plan.
