My recently completed piece for the Brandon C. Gromada Head and Neck Cancer Foundation to help raise a few bucks in an upcoming fundraising auction. The goal of the foundation is to generate funds for the development of innovative and more effective treatments which lead to cures for head and neck cancers, most of which are some type of squamous cell cancer (SCC).

If you wish to learn more about the subject or perhaps make a donation here is a link.

This piece itself, as yet untitled, is constructed of cloth, plaster, wire, “Durabond 90”, and acrylics. The web pattern implies the metal mask a patient wears during radiation treatments for head & neck cancer.

“She had blue skin,
And so did he.
He kept it hid
And so did she.
They searched for blue
Their whole life through,
Then passed right by-
And never knew.”

but revelations, and the lavishness of someone’s soul inspired and ablaze.”

“Try as much as possible to be wholly alive, with all your might, and when you laugh, laugh like hell and when you get angry, get good and angry.

Try to be alive. You will be dead soon enough.”

~ William Saroyan, American writer (1908 – 1981)

Whole of Nature

“A human being is a part of the whole called by us universe, a part limited in time and space. He experiences himself, his thoughts and feeling as something separated from the rest, a kind of optical delusion of his consciousness. This delusion is a kind of prison for us, restricting us to our personal desires and to affection for a few persons nearest to us. Our task must be to free ourselves from this prison by widening our circle of compassion to embrace all living creatures and the whole of nature in its beauty.”


~ Albert Einstein

This young man personifies courage in the face of challenge.I see him playing his heart out at Findlay Market in Cincinnati, Ohio every now and then and thank him for the gift of perspective in my life and exposing my own frailties.
