So while stuck in the hospital after having my cancer removed and in pain I started to go stir crazy for not having any art to do. I was not planning on staying when I went to the ER so I had not brought ANYTHING to do. So I made do with whatever came my way, which wasn't much. I ended up painting with my grape juice (I don't like it.) and my Jello. So with some juice and jello I painted my breakfast menu and a scrounged ballpoint pen doodled whatever I "saw".  I really like the doodles I came up with.....so this is my cancer awareness art....I plan on making more....but hopefully not with whatever lacking materials I can find in the hospital....

Well done. You are a true exponent of "Art is where you find it".  I love your little doodles and hope you are on the mend now and pain free.

thank you so much for all of the wonderful and kind comments!  It makes me feel happy and much more empowered to keep pushing through with my art no matter how tired or bad I may feel through my up coming chemo and radiation treatments....

Love you all on Craftster! The best internet family an artist could ask for!
