“If you ask me what I came to do in this world, I, an artist, will answer you: I am here to live out loud.” ― Émile Zola
Description: Two scans arranged in Ps
This scanography diptych depicts a woman at the start of chemotherapy, who has just lost her hair. While cancer is a difficult subject, this image is a celebration of new beginnings, as she embarks on a battle to save her own life.

Thank you so much; this was done almost a year ago, and she's still doing well and is cancer free.
I'm happy to read that! Somehow I knew... thank you!

I can't even speak to this Fred - I think I've said elsewhere how deeply this moves me and what it signifies for me about both you and your mother. I'm sorry I didn't come into the lounge to congratulate you dear Fred...but please know how very much I admire you both and what a gift I believe this to be for so many. xo

One of the hardest things in life, is to watch somebody you care for, lose something that they love. I can tell from your art work you have a very tender and close relationship, it's good your able to express it, Congratulations Fred for having the courage and ability to share.

Powerful title and image, amazing you know to embrace and transform it, versus being frozen by it.
Thank you! Often art can be a safe container for processing emotion....
