Describe your art here - type of art, techniques and materials used, what your art represents and what it means to you.
California Poppies is an Acrylic on canvas painting that I painted during the start of the Covid 19 pandemic lockdown.
Fun Facts: The poppy played an important role in religion, mythology, politics, and medicine. Most found growing on roadsides, these flowers have helped doctors treat their patient's generations. Poppies are medicinal and edible, this colorful flower symbolizes very deep emotions.

The Poppy is a symbol of:
Recovery & Restful sleep
A Gift for Loss or death in the family
Remembering the fallen in military
Great imagination
Rest in Peace
Resurrection & eternal life
Success and Beauty
If grown on the Northside of your home, expect money to soon flow in.

Remember the Wizard of Oz?
The Deadly Poppy Field symbolizes the dangers of apathy and complacency. The Deadly Poppy fields are just one of many obstacles along the Yellow Brick Road. Looking at Wizard of Oz with a wide-angle lens, the Yellow Brick Road embodies the arduous, obstacle-filled, and bumpy road to one's goals.(

Please include your age, tumor type and date of diagnosis (patients & survivors only) and let us know how art has impacted your life.
I'm Ben's Momma, he is diagnosed with RELA Fusion Ependymoma Grade III. He's had 4 tumors and 4 brain surgeries. He is now 9 years old and will be 10 on May 10th. The irony is that May 10th is Ependymoma Awareness Day.
I'm am honored to be a part of the Art of Surviving, it symbolizes everything that I enjoy and love. I use art to heal, we as a family use it to recover, it brings us together as we sit calmly and just create. You can see our art school at
