As I painted this I thought “Oh Texas, You should always dress in wildflowers. They are so becoming on you!”

💕 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.

Spring Growth

“I believe in process. I believe in four seasons. I believe that winter’s tough, but spring’s coming. I believe that there’s a growing season. And I think that you realize that in life, you grow. You get better.” -Steve Southerland

Blushing Cactus (finished)

7″x5″ pastel on sanded paper

I decided to spend a few more minutes on this study. Spines are my favorite part of a cactus, so I wanted to add them. This photo was taken in lousy light, the light value of the background is a beautiful blush. It photographed almost white today.

Taking Time For Flowers and Friends

Pink Blooms

24″x18″ pastel on sanded paper

Today I painted during a breast cancer luncheon at Baylor Hospital in Dallas with their arts and medicine program. A music therapist was also playing the harp during the lunch! It was such a beautiful day!

I included names in my underpainting of this painting. The names were collected from past and current patients of people that have impacted their treatment of breast cancer.
