“These were done in stages, layering paint up, hence the messages underneath. I was feeling pretty hopeful when I did these, I think that shows. They were part of an online art course I am doing hosted by Amanda Everston. I also did a bigger painting on canvas and transformed two of the roses into boobs (image 4).  I like the fact flowers bloom in a cycle, I feel that imitates the cycles of chemo. Bloom, crash, bloom, crash, bloom!
