I’ve spent quite some time thinking about whether I wanted to blog about this or not, but during this October awareness month I have decided that I would. Since this is a blog related mostly to my art, I intend to keep it that way—I thought I’d reflect on it from that point of view.
This past July I was diagnosed with breast cancer, and have been going through treatments ever since. The prognosis is good, so I’m very eager to try and get this behind me and continue with my life, I’m currently in a second round of chemo with a long road yet to travel.
So, those of you who follow my blog and website, may have noticed a lack of activity, and that is the case… I have not spent a great deal of time actually painting these days, but I have spent a lot of time reflecting about my art, it’s direction and what it all means to me. I have a lot of sketches, thoughts and reflection that I’m eager to see how this all translates back into my work. I feel as though I have perhaps an even deeper insight on what it is I want to accomplish.
I need to believe that everything has a reason, and am looking forward to seeing myself, and my art through to the other side.
I have tremendous support from my loved ones, close friends, and colleagues, but also from people I’ve only just met. I have heard stories from so many survivors and it’s given me strength. It has truly made me aware of how lucky I really am, and very grateful.
