I have a wonderful friend who is battling stage IV cancer. I'm having a hard time dealing with it and feeling selfish because her side of things is so devastating. All I can do is cry when I think about it. It's bringing up memories of another person that I couldn't really share my feelings with. I am changing that with my friend. I'm talking about my feelings when she wants to and she is sharing her feelings with me when she wants to. After her diagnosis and when she was feeling better she wanted to get out of the house so we went to the Los Angeles Corner's Office. They have a cool gift shop and once I accepted her need to go, I had a ball. We drove around that part of town a bit, which is East L.A., I guess, and took some cool pix. I want to incorporate some of those pix into my art. It just hasn't formulated yet.
I entered my monotype into the Hemet Art Assoc. for the month of January and took honorable mention. I'm please with that. This monotype thing got started at Art Unraveled and Dorit Elisha. I loved her class and although we didn't do monotype with a press, it awakened a new interest. I'm going to Riverside City College for monotype class. Three days a week, six weeks. I'm loving it.
