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!

Getting some perspective

I was too tired to blog yesterday but I did draw. My Drawing I class is moving slowly, thank heavens, so I might even be able to master the basics.

We've had TWO demonstrations on one-point perspective (and I needed them both). I'm slightly dyslexic and anything with spatial or right-left directions boggles my fragile brain. But I'm getting it, I think.

In class, after any teaching or demonstrations, we sit and draw for 2-1/2 hours. At this point we're only supposed to be gaining eye-hand coordination but all the necessary lessons will be forthcoming. Today I made about five starts, but in the end, I came up with these philodendron leaves which are better than the green ones I drew last week.
