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!

After the market

This morning was a chemotherapy day so I took the afternoon off and went back to bed. That's allowed, isn't it? Then Steve and I went over to the weekly farmers' market and brought fresh organic veggies. The food concessions were awesome. I chose a great Thai dish - a chicken pumpkin curry. Oh, yum!

Here's my view of chemo this morning.

Several years ago Steve planted a sprig of jasmine near our front door. On summer evenings the scent wafts through the living room and calls me to draw.

    I love the scent of Jasmine too. Good sketch of the plant.

  2. Nice Texture and design,I like it's feel the way your leaves flow and turn.

  3. So sorry to read (after a long absence) that chemo was indicated again. (I'm reading backwards.. but already love the Dodson/Gregory inspired drawings). BTW do you read or know Andrew Vachss?
