Ken will start a new treatment program next week and, while he has been having lots of blood drawn over the last few months, that will increase significantly as he goes through the next several weeks. I have been thinking about blood, blood flowing out of his body and blood flowing back into his body. I painted this as I played with these thoughts.
The painting has collaged strips from the product information sheet. Maybe it is my focus on geometry and maintaining an optimistic attitude but the painting doesn’t communicate emotion to me. I started in watercolor and finished in acrylic paint. I am not sure if I will keep this or try to recover the surface and do something else. Either way, I’m glad I did this painting. It is putting me more in touch with my feeling.
