you HAD cancer

Just wanted to post a picture of the YOU HAD CANCER piece.  It has been so fun and therapeutic for me to work on.  While I have been working on other paintings at the same time, I always find myself adding something to this one.  Now the decision comes as to whether to call this one finished and continue on to another canvas?  I like the fact that this one is painted over an old (20+ years)  painting I did in my senior year at Skidmore.  Why do I like this you ask?  Well, a certain group of my friends from that time in my life were with me this past year in such a loving, supportive, non judging, real, honest, gut wrenching funny, unsung hero kind of way. It's only fitting that the foundation of this painting reminds me of them.
