    @Spillsy Looks just like one of my hubbys masterpieces. He finds his artwork very therapeutic.

    @Spillsy, keep up the artwork!  If you find it therapeutic, it stays.  It is okay to be different and I like your interpretation <3

    @Spillsy

    Getting stuck into some form of artistic expression is the best therapy for discombulated states. My sewing room has saved my sanity countless times. No sipping though, as there is a trudge of 80 metres from the sewing "studio" ( I have pretentions of grandeur) back to the house.

    I like your work, more please.

    You have captured the vulnerability of diagnosis and all that goes with it. Something about the back moves me and yet there's also a sense of strength. Please keep painting!

    Hi Spillsy, that’s fantastic! You might want to look into an art therapy group. It helped me.

    thanks for the encouragement everyone. For me the yellow is my heart 💓 trying to move forward, surrounded by the discombobulated body post BC. 
    I will definitely look into art or ceramics or something else to try this year. 
    It’s amazing what the posts on here can do to raise the spirits and make me feel in similar company. 
    Thank you all.

    @Spillsy Hello my dear friend! I was only thinking the other day we were overdue for a lunch date to catch up! 
    As some of the other lovely  ladies have suggested finding a new focus might help, i myself have joined a gym in a hope to get my fitness up and I'm finding I miss it when I don't go (I have never before said that about exercise!)
    But I think you may have found your calling in art, your painting was fantastic, keep it up.
    I have an interview tomorrow but text me when your free and we will book in a date  soon xx

    Hello lovely, 
    great to hear from you.
    i have let the fitness/exercise   slip and know it should be a priority, then tiredness slips back in, i was doing well mid year, and feeling like I was making progress. 
    good luck for your interview.
    i am off to Launceston tomorrow, but would love to catch up later this week.
