I painted these flowers in memory of a friend who recently lost her battle with cancer.
I painted them with fluid acrylics on canvas board. I stamped into the paint with bubble wrap to create the flower centers.
I think many of us have been touched by the lives of people who die from cancer too soon.
I glued some of my gelli-printed deli paper onto the flowers with Matte medium.
My friend was courageous in her fight. Although we only knew each other online through art classes, I will miss her gentle spirit.
I added Neocolors to finish my painting.
I’d like to think that she is now wearing flowers in her hair like this haiku I wrote:
Flowers in her hair,
Dancing in a meadow free,
Cancer’s chains released.
