Another angel in the works…

I think I subconsciously tend to paint angels when I am dealing with a health issue. As many of my followers know, I am living with Stage IV inflammatory breast cancer. In the lead-up to my Angels of Power collection, people asked if I was painting chemo angels – because they were bald. I wasn’t intentionally, but it turns out that at that time the cancer was coming back.

I have only painted one angel since then, but she was gorgeous. The other week I attended a social event with a cancer group I am an advocate for and the subject of angel paintings came up. Immediately, I decided to paint another angel… maybe more than one. We’ll have to see about that.

The ironic thing is, now that I decided to create another angel… and I’ve actually already started on the underlayers… my own health and concern for cancer spread has come to the forefront. Are they related? I don’t know. I don’t necessarily think that’s how the world works, but I really don’t know.

Anyway… check out the beautiful underlayers! Can you see where the face is? I’ll post more as she progresses. Maybe I’ll even paint some small angels to spread the joy.

Hi there, this is Brandi. I'm a pharmacist who works a very funny schedule, all week long but only every other week. As a result I'm off half the year plus vacation time. What do I do in all that time off? Good question... maybe if I start documenting it I'll know too:) Just kidding! I spend a lot of time on domestics: fixing up my house, cooking, sewing, knitting and of course bonding with my darling dog Darcy. I actually have the time and money to travel a bit, finally, so I will try to do that often on my week off. To my friends, this may be the quickest way to see what's going on in my life while I'm away.
