Editing Drawings for a Show

After speading out on the floor,  400 plus drawings,  I’ve edited them down  to about 50.  Definitely, I see stages of drawing during the 80 days of radiation.  This image of an orchid sketched  in the middle of the night shows one of the most recent pieces 12″ x 16″ on paper, pastel and india ink.

    I wrote this piece at the beginning of the week. I had drawn the roll of twine in the morning before the doctor called to ask me to come in and get a biopsy done.  I was sitting there thinking I sketched a roll of  twine this morning, now she is using thread and needle on my neck.

    The good news is biopsy report records no cancer. Hooray. It sort of took me back for a couple of days.
