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!

Church and The Bluebird Cafe

Steve and I were in Ukiah, California this morning where he was officiating at a church that is about 75 miles from our home.

Returning, we stopped for Sunday brunch at the Bluebird Cafe, a local haunt in Hopland which was featured HERE just a few days ago.

I wish I could take credit for the lovely pen and ink drawing on the upper right corner of this larger composition, but it was on the cover of the bulletin and I pasted my interior sketch next to it. You can't see the paste lines so it looks like I did it all, but anyone who has been following my postings knows I can't draw architecture (yet) so I couldn't even lie and get away with it!


  1. Your sketch fits in very nicely with that background, I like what you did!

  2. You will get there! You are improving very quickly these days!
