Breast Cancer Awareness Month
In honor of October being Breast Cancer Awareness month, I am posting a photo of a body paint I did back in January for an Art Fresca art event. Proceeds from the event went to help find a cure for Breast Cancer. If you have never been to one of Art Fresca art shows here is her FB where the events are published.

This photo is one of three photos I have from this series. In this photograph, the young woman’s eyes are open, as if she's staring cancer down- ready to face it. The other two photos are of the same bodypaint, but the feeling is very different. She’s covering herself in to protect herself. Although her eyes are closed, she still stands strong in a self embrace. This was a very meaningful and important art piece for me- I hope it conveys what I intended to portray.
Because October is Breast Cancer Awareness month for the Month of October 25% of the profits from any sales of these three images will go to the Susan G. Komen Foundation. To purchase or view the other two photos from this series click here.
