Free of Twists and Turns
From my surgery series. There are two parts of me, my outer scars and acceptance of my inner self. I had a double mastectomy in 1994 as a pro active measure based on a medical diagnosis and a heavy family history of breast cancer. Mixed media on plywood, with recycled papers, acrylic, oil, oil pastel, marker,surgical gauze, and other medical paraphernalia.
