About the artwork:
“I took this photo of my partner in September, on a morning walk after her first chemotherapy session for breast cancer. It was the beginning of what will be a long and challenging journey for both of us. Although we’ll have many more dark moments as a result of her illness, there is a fundamental sense of moving toward a positive outcome, moving into the light.”

Absolutely beautiful Debbie!
This is stunning. It’s an uncanny picture of the future. I like the way Cathy is leaning into the journey. And that red shirt makes it a National Geographic winner.
Powerful and perfect!!
It’s like you have connections “upstairs” to get that miracle lighting.
Enjoyed your book of poems — some very heavy!! You are too talented.
Thanks so much, Dorothy. Just a lucky time of day on the photo (for the light).
Perfect photo for the sentiment on many levels.
Wonderful photo, Deb. Indeed, a photo of hope!
We wish you both a New Year full of renewed health and happiness.
Thank you so much!
