Bone of My Bone

Bone of My Bone, 2014. Charcoal, gouache, and hand-stitching on paper, 24 x 18"

This piece was made in prayer for my beloved friend, Kelly, who has been battling and is defeating cancer for the second time. Two flickers, symbolizing healing love, new rhythm, and the cycle of growth, work faithfully together in mending the lesions that doctors found on her rib, scapula, hip, sacrum, and in multiple vertebrae.

During her fight, doctors have marveled at her recovery rate. A true testament to how enduring love, strong community support, great faith, and unwavering hope can move the human spirit and body to healing.

'Daughter, be of good comfort; thy faith hath made thee whole.' And the woman was made whole from that hour.  - Matthew 9:22
