Transcendent Visual Art - Another Regarding Chemotherapy
I painted this a year or so before I went through chemotherapy which resulted in total hair loss. The teacher wanted it in a student show so I had it framed. After the show I hung it on the wall in my home. During chemo I came across a non-itchy Totes hat-scarf combo thing which I wore at daily home to keep my head warm since it was the middle of winter. One day after a recent treatment I was sacked out on the futon, with bone pain and green with nausea wearing the red hat-scarf. I turned, looked directly at this painting and it all came together. I could not believe what I was seeing: a green (& nauseous?) woman with a red scarf around her head. I called to my husband in disbelief. The moment of recognition was enlightening and healing. Her tranquility put me at ease. But I still have no explanation for the bird!
