I brought my paints to the hospital when I was admitted almost five
years ago at age 63. I had a biopsy and was slated for a lumpectomy
and lymphectomy, fortunately on my left side. I am right-handed. From
that day, I have never stopped painting. Everything is fair game:
animals, landscapes, a series of old chairs, portraits and abstracts,
too. As the mother of four children and grandmother of two, I finally
have the time to paint. Every day is a gift.
