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!

That time of year

We've been looking at skulls and muscles in my life drawing class as a way to better understand the underlying structures of the figures.

When we were asked to draw a skull for homework, I couldn't resist and drew a canine skull. I often wonder what's going on underneath my doggies' fuzzy black fur. There are days when it seems nothing is there at all, they are empty headed numbskulls. Or they are food obsessed. Or tennis ball addicted.

But no, I now understand they have skull bones. Hard as rocks. Empty headed beyond that, perhaps, but under the fur is a canine skull.
