Looking Back While Looking Forward

I guess it comes with age this looking back.
I'm pleased with what I have accomplished as an artist over the years through good times and hard times.

























Since I was diagnosed with breast cancer in May 2017 my art themes have changed drastically but my need to create has never left me.














My body has changed forever after the mastectomy. I have only one breast and a long scar across my chest. My thoughts are now infiltrated with cancer and the stress of it returning. Every ache or bump sends panic throughout my body.


So I concentrate on creating new artworks while looking forward to how ever many days I have here on earth. I concentrate on family and friends and enjoying life on Vancouver Island. I am grateful.

  2. I always like to see your creations Carole. They always tell a story/share a message. So glad the need to create has been there for you through this difficult bit of life. And I too continue to concentrate on family and friends and enjoying life in my little part of the worlds. Blessings to you and yours. xo Kim

    1. Thank you, Kim. Without art and family/friends I'd be curled up in bed. Blessings to you and yours too. xo
