Sometimes I like to use glow-in-the-dark pigment in my resin pours. Check out the resin pyramid below, the only light in the room is from the clock-radio it’s sittng on, my Apple Watch beside it, and of course the glowing pyramid its self.
A purple cancer ribbon represents Pancreatic Cancer.
Last year my husband, Simon, was Diagnosed with cancer in his pancreas. He had major surgery and spent a long time in hospital. The second half of the year Simon spent on chemotherapy. For his last chemo session, I made this resin-art version of the purple cancer ribbon.
We presented the art piece to the staff in the cancer ward on Simon’s last day, hopeful that we wouldn’t need to return.
Simon’s first couple of check-ups this year were clear. We thought he had made a full recovery, but his June check-up showed the cancer had returned, so after a few more tests, it was back onto chemotherapy from August.
Because of the Covid restrictions, I haven’t been able to go with Simon to chemo this time around. Simon hasn’t seen my art piece on display, but whether it’s hanging somewhere, or in a storeroom, I’m still proud of my resin art cancer ribbon, and gratefull to the staff of the hospital cancer wards.
