I wasn't sure how to offer a pink tribute but today the idea for a painting came into my head and when I had finished this painting, another image kind of painted itself on the next sheet of paper. I can't really explain it any other way, I was splattering pink paint around and this image just appeared.
Hope you like them!
A photo of John Lennon brought the word Imagine to my mind today. I began to imagine the future with no diseases and then the idea of a dove came to me. I hope you'll forgive the shameless pilfering of a famous dove outline!
I had a lot of pink paint left over so decided to splash some paint around on another page. After a few splotches I began to think about the anger and fear that comes with the diagnosis of the "c" word. About 30 seconds later, one of the splotches began to resemble the figure of a man praying and I added the outline to emphasize it. At least I think he's praying - maybe he's shaking his fist instead!! Kinda weird and kinda cool all at the same time :o !
|The Face of Cancer - 9 x 11 Acrylic on Canvas Paper|
I'm sure there is no one out there who hasn't been affected in one way or another by breast cancer. My mom had a full mastectomy at the age of 60 and 24 years later, she's still going strong! Luckily, my story has a very happy ending.
May anyone who is dealing with a diagnosis that is uncomfortable or frightening feel the love and support from all of us who are holding the faith that this disease will be defeated.
Keep the faith...
