Who Needs Hair?

I created this painting while undergoing chemo in 2015. It is watercolor and collage. The hat feather is real. I chose soft bright colors to offset the seriousness of the face. The shapes represent the confusion and mix of emotions surrounding cancer treatment. I wanted to portray a positive image, although cancer treatments are very difficult to endure. There is a white dove in the lower right corner symbolizing hope.
