when two heads are better than one, or maybe it's only one head facing confliction within himself... these who's who paintings focus on our own duality, restrictions, and often feeling of entrapment within ourselves.

Finally, I got some painting time and worked on a new abstract portrait! It's still wet.

This piece merges the colors of chemotherapy and shadows of the former self. I am often haunted by who I once was and what I was capable of doing before my diagnosis. Survivorship is a struggle and the new me can be challenging and painful some days.

A work that I have put up in my own house depending on my mood. Seems appropriate to hang right now.

It's always fun to see one of your works hanging up in the person's house who now owns it!

To swell or not to swell.
Edema is an issue for people with Lymphedema. Even though painting causes me to swell, I can't stop creating.

I found out tonight one of my abstract works, teal explosion, was one of the Special Merit Category winners in the All Women Art Exhibition from @lightspacetime.art 
What a great way to end 2017 & begin 2018!

The Blue Ridge Mountains are beautiful. Inspired by them, I combined acrylic and oil... along with dirt from the area. I always try to get a bit of land when I travel to incorporate into the work inspired by the location.
