Sometimes it’s just fun to play with the digital world of photography. This photo I took yesterday while leaving my daughters home after a fun-filled week. She lives on the edge of the city among several wheat fields. The ravens were having a gathering of sorts in this field along the roadside as I turned to head out. After seeing it in pink it came to me…of course, October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month. I’ve seen a constant splash of pink everywhere, so why not go pink in honor of those strong women either fighting or survivors of breast cancer. I’ve worked for several years with Casting for Recovery, a retreat for breast cancer survivors. It is an amazing weekend retreat that brings 14 women together. They not only bond together in respect to what they have all shared in their fight against breast cancer but also learn to fly fish. It’s truly an amazing experience for not only the participants but the volunteer staff…it’s so rewarding. Let’s ban together and fight to strike out breast cancer!
I’ve been away for so long! This piece is a 16 X 20″ gallery wrapped canvas. A mixed-media piece using zippers for the flower stems. Approximately 10 layers of recycled papers and acrylics, oil pastels, watercolour pencils, pen…so fun to complete!
Have a great day and thanks for visiting my neglected blog!!
