My Teal Tart
Painting - Acrylic Mixed Water Media
As an ovarian cancer survivor of four years, I paint to faciltate my healing as when I'm painting, I totally foget that I have cancer. In addition, I've found that my art work is a wonderful outlet for me so I continue to take classes including life drawing classes. At first I didn't know how I would use my nude sketches because I often use my art to educate women about ovarian cancer. Then one day I started painting the nudes and named them Althea's Teal Tart (Teal is the ovarian cancer survivor's color). They are outlandish nudes who seem a little edgy but put themselves all out there anyway by projecting their being able to see themselves humerously. I've shared them wih my support grop and we all get a good laugh from them.
