That is a magical picture.Joy on canvas. I bet it's a hit with your niece.p.s. My friend and former roommate was diagnosed with stage 3 Hodgkin's almost a decade ago. Treatment was no picnic (and lasted a long time), but it worked- now he's married and has a cute kid too.
Enduring, inDEED. The only thing that makes all that poison worth it is the end and the healing and all the love that goes around. And exquisite, lyrical, magical pictures. (Think you could have left maybe ONE adjective? :):)) It really is all of those and all that.
Thanks Namowal and booda baby. The symbolism in this picture intrigues me. Energy is bandied around so much but there is a mysterious energy in this I think. I love how Marti uses language in her paintings. Both of you seem to know what hell that disease can be, and how much you want the healing.
ps the image is slightly cropped on the blog right.
I really like the art therapy aspect of her work. What a great idea.
I love the idea behind these paintings, and I love this painting. I love the 3 brownish characters with blue hair (bottom right). The word "love" keeps popping out of my keyboard...the painting is bursting with love.
I like those guys at bottom right too, also the universe at top left. It's open to so many interpretations but all so joyous.
Look at the dots on the happy guys at the bottom. Polk-dots...Oaxacan influences perchance? Thanks to Linda I've got those on the brain.
This painting is just... amazing. So great. Marti did a great job. Everything seems so 60's (like Quasi at the Quackadero LOL). BTW, what's it like to have a niece with lymphoma?SamtheCruikshankFan
A friend told me that as he was leaving his father after a visit at the facility, his father told him: "Have your people call my people."
stray, that cracked me up.
