Isaiah 41:10 Sunday Collage on Canvas and Some WIPs

I was looking at the calendar this morning and realized that this time last year I was diagnosed with breast cancer  and preparing for my double mastectomy surgery which took place on September 14th.  Wow, almost a year has gone by since that surgery and many more associated with this disease.  But here I am a year later writing this blog post and can say that I am still cancer free! 


10" x 8" canvas that I first painted with Pitch Black Adirondack Acrylic Paint
Various decorative papers including vintage ledger paper, white paint pen, fun foam and Diamond Glaze . . .
I threaded some cotton candy pink and white twine through an antique silver breast cancer awareness "Hope" charm for the girl's necklace. . .
 Since I had the paints and papers out, I started three more canvas collages . . .
I painted the canvas using Claudine Hellmuth Studio Paint in Classic Teal.  I just love the consistency of her paints!
I used her Landscape Green on this canvas . . .


Have a great art-filled week ahead!

You are amazing and inspiring and stronger than the strongest....I wish I could listen to the song list in my area....I guess they don't want the incessant whining tainted by actual music and culture. Grin. It might interrupt the drug dealing, and lead to actual employment. Sigh. I only hope some of it goes to legal medical marijuana groups....but I have my doubts. That would be conscience-driven, and caring. Sigh. God Bless and keep you, Sher. You are wonderful, and always in my prayers....Stay strong!
