Please enjoy a celebration of pink paintings this month, in honor of breast cancer awareness. I paint for my friends and family who have fought the good fight against cancer, for their families, and for all caregivers who help along with the journey toward a healthy self (body, soul, and spirit). In my strokes of pink, are prayers of strength and healing. I keep a list of names by my easel, and I remember those people as I paint. Let me know, in the comments, if you would like me to add a name to the list.

Four Stream Ahead

2’x4’ oil on canvas

Pink is my favorite underpainting color, I find it looks so beautiful under almost all landscape paintings, and I love when it peeks out through the upper layers of paint. I can’t wait to add color to the bones of this painting, and it looks kind of cool at this stage. – sort of unfinished and graphic.

Important Work

It is not how busy you are, but why you are busy — the bee is praised, the mosquito is swatted.

Today I paint for Amy LupPlace Gillispie. She did important work. She was a daughter, sister, wife, mother, and artist. She was unbelievably creative. She did all her important work for the last decade with breast cancer. She was brave, strong, and so beautiful. Hands down, she looked better without hair than ever man woman or baby I have ever seen, she was soooo beautiful. Our community won’t be the same without her, RIP.
