Baby Roo and a celebration!

A while back I'd painted a baby rooster here and it sold. This follow up was done from the same reference photo shoot and commissioned by a friend for her sweet daughter for Easter. These babies are so much fun to paint!

And on a more personal note:
Today is a momentous day. Six months after receiving a metastatic cancer diagnosis followed by 6 months of treatment, today marks the end of my 6th and final "Elixir of Life" (chemo) infusion!  I am celebrating...quietly, but a celebration nonetheless. And with that comes an overwhelming feeling of immense gratitude for the care, support and encouragement I've received. And now we wait...and I get on with the joy of living each day blissfully and with passion. This is my theme song for today...and every day. CRANK IT!!

Celebrating with you~ and here's also celebrating 'hope'. Hope is what carries us through, and gives us a new look at beauty and love. I love, love, love your baby roosters. May they all sell! xo

Staying grateful can be hard but I know if I stay in that place everything around me is "do-able". I am so glad the treatment is over and your body is healing ..your art never missed a beat.
