One More Piece of Hospital Art

While having another chemo treatment, I hauled out my art supplies and started to play! (The nurses were full of questions about what I was doing -- and some showed me their latest projects ;) I started with a little canvas on which I had painted a picture I didn't like. At one point I decided that I'd like some of that picture to show through, so I sanded a few spots -- but I'd forgotten that I'd turned the canvas upside down because I thought the way the sewing patterns I'd glued on looked better that way :{ Oops! Some upside down tree branches in a sky on the ground :{ 

Anyway -- I wasn't sure I really liked the end result. 

But then I stuck it in an old frame I found in the basement, and I liked it better. 

I'm still not sure I'm fond of my lady -- especially her face -- but as usual, it simply felt good to be creative. It sure made the hours of chemo go by faster! I didn't even have time to finish the little project until I got home.

Have you done any creative therapy lately? 


  1. Love the colors, the words and the energy behind this piece!

  2. Upside down branches are fine. I think art always goes up a notch when framed...framing is key. I like your canvas and hope you have a good day!

  3. I love your woman and she certainly looks great framed! Hope you have a great day!

  4. This is beautiful. I love that you choose to create while you go through chemo.

  5. What a beautiful piece!! I'm so inspired by the way you've been creating while undergoing treatment. Thank you for joining in AEDM! You're an inspiration to many!!
