But when I found out I had breast cancer, even though I didn't want it to, it's had a way of consuming a lot of time and a lot of my focus..which by the way is pretty annoying.
Anyways I've found it all but impossible to focus well enough to paint the way I usually do and finally, I wanted to paint something so much I decided to do an abstract instead.
It's so much easier and freer and looser for me to paint this way and actually, I wound up really liking the painting.
I made it because it's breast cancer awareness month and well, I have breast cancer, so I thought I'd make something for it. Since I had such a good time doing it and I like it I may do a bunch of abstracts and see where it all goes.
I think, for me, this painting shows how I'm feeling at the moment; I can still see the beauty in the world but it's a bit blurred by present circumstance. But it's still there....it may be a bit out of focus...but the beauty is still there.
