I have been trying to get back to some art. It has been hard for me to be creative lately as my mind has been cluttered with an upcoming procedure. On Monday I will be having a cyst excision on my right upper arm. I am absolutely terrified. To some this may seem like nothing but to a cancer survivor something as simple as a cold becomes a huge deal. When your body is not well in any way shape or form even a little ache or pain can be scary. According to the doctor this is s simple procedure and it will be done in her office. I will have stitches for 10 days and limitations with my movement which will be challenging since I am right handed. Never mind that it will of course be biopsied and despite the fact that the doctor is sure it is nothing my mind cannot help but be freaked out.
Yesterday I was able to get messy with paint inspired by lessons from Alisa Burke's "Art of Abstraction" online class. I am really loving it so far. As you can see I scribbled over most of this piece and I loved it! It is a good way to get out angst! I have another one in progress that I will share soon that is in a crimson and payne's gray palette.
I am sharing this over at Paint Party Friday.

Wishing you a lovely weekend. I am going to try and keep my mind occupied on something other than cysts and surgery. Not sure how successful I will be though. :/
