Lucinda and the Hare

Lucinda and the Hare

I guess I am going to have to call this painting finished. I’ve just noticed there is quite a bit of glare on this but I think you get the idea.

I’ve had this on the old easel since last year (2013) (now it’s on the new easelย  ๐Ÿ˜‰ย  ). The problem was mainly because I started this painting and then found out I had lung cancer again. I had the operation in October so it was late in the year (December) before I could continue with this one.

Then this year I have found out I have bowel cancer again just as I was starting a new painting. I’m going to keep going while I can. I’ve had the investigative operation, MRI scan, CT scan, PET scan and colonoscopy so I should be going in to hospital for the operation anytime now.

With the new painting, I will try to post some process shots as I go along. It is something I have been saying I would do for quite a while now.

Look I don’t know what to say , I am sitting here feeling gutted for you, if there is anything I can do for you please let me know,and I really mean that it’s not just an off the cuff to make me feel better. Keep in touch, I hope you get some good news for a change, talk soon. Phil (MAS)

    1. Hello Phil. So great to hear from you and read your great comments. I consider you a true friend. I’m at Southampton General on 2nd May for a meeting so I should find out what they are doing and when the operation date is.
      I am hoping you and your family are well.

      One thing about cancer, it gives you plenty of time for painting – too bad that you always feel too tired ๐Ÿ˜‰ Oh well.

  5. Gracious sakes… Well, you will certainly be in my thoughts and prayers Stew. You have beautifully completed this painting!! Perhaps you can begin something new before you go in for more surgery…you know, to give you something to look forward to when you are recuperated enough. Many blessings to you!

    1. Hello Jennifer. I’m so glad to see you here, thank you for coming.
      I am hoping to get another painting finished before I go in to hospital, as I know I will be in for quite a few weeks. Chances are slim though as I get so tired. On the other hand, I have started and should post something quite soon ๐Ÿ™‚
      Thank you for the kind words.
      Take Care.
