My artwork is an oil painting on canvas. It depicts sunrise at the edge of the water. I have been an amateur painter since childhood. I am also a five and a half year survivor of advanced non-small cell lung cancer (stage 3b), which recently recurred. As a cancer survivor, I appreciate more than ever each and every day. This is one of a series of sunrise/seascape paintings in which I try to express the joy, beauty and appreciation of each day of life.
