Day #15, December 2, 2013 from What’s in My Drawers.
Watercolor, ink and collage on paper
7.5″ x 11″
This is a piece I started when I was at Sloan Kettering Memorial Hospital back in 2011 for my surgery. It was actually a pretty groovy kind of hospital stay (especially compared to the one back in 2003 at St. Peter’s Hospital in New Brunswick!) I had a room to myself, the nurses were fantastic, as was near by family and friends who came stopped by with goodies, and there was a lot of interesting contemporary art on the walls in every corridor. Art makes everything better.
They also had an activity and social area on another floor. I went up there one day- sun was streaming in, live music was playing and there were lots of art supplies. So I dug in… grabbed some heavy watercolor paper, brushes and paint and thought positive thoughts.
