Wise Beyond Years…

A friend of mine has recently been diagnosed with cancer.  My heart goes out to her and her family…

I was thinking of her as I created this face yesterday.

I pray that she will be able to fight this terrible disease and win!  This face below has the determination and strength my friend has…  And the knowledge that God is with her.

So MANY people are fighting and struggling with cancer.  Too many people!


I dedicate today’s post to my friend T and EVERYONE who is fighting for their lives or supporting friends and loved ones battling cancer – YOU are wise beyond your years…

Sending love and hope! ❤

Flowers In Her Hair

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.
