August was a true celebration for me. I celebrated five years of being Cancer Free. My cancer was found early (stage 1) Medullary Carcinoma of the Thyroid. I'm feeling healthy and blessed. I received news that I placed in two categories at the DAC Regional Juried Exhibition, painting and drawing. Last week-end I was honored with Viewer's Choice at Erin's "Sweet Tea and Southern Art" local showcase for Houston County and surrounding area. I had two solo shows for my artwork in August. I received so many wonderful comments about my work through these events. A young mother told me this was her favorite show she had seen at that location and she had been coming there for three years. So now, I'm feeling really GOOD, blessed, proud, healthy and very happy to say the least. Thank the Lord,
I do pray for those who are battling cancer and other life altering diseases. I pray for families who have to see their love ones go through their battle. I also pray for those parents who's children have had to pass on before them. I have been blessed, thank the Lord. .
This is an adventure for me, something I've always wanted to do: to be a real Artist! So I rented a studio, lets see how it goes.
