(Click on images to see them with clearer, crisper, and probably bigger)

Life has been crazy busy and intense lately. I was diagnosed with breast cancer just over a month ago and have been quite busy to say the least. I've got a little breather right now as I recover from surgery and prepare for chemotherapy. Last night I managed to pull out some materials to put together a collage.

Needless to say, my life, not to mention my body, is permanently altered. (More on this on my other blog.) I wondered if this might show up in my art.

Upside-down, this collage is Chicken Little's biggest fear: the sky is most definitely falling. But that's not the way I intended this piece. I've tried it at every angle but came back to the original. And now it has a title. Uplift.
