“Day One Wellness Whimsy” for Bruce Day1 "Wellness Whimsy". a flower a day until the cancer goes away.

I’M ON A MISSION and you can help.
My brother has been fighting for many months, and now again with all his might, to overcome the many issues left behind from being over-radiated in his cancer treatment.  He has been in the hospital as many months on as and off in the last year and half na endured more than one person should bear, but hes miraculously As I write this its been 2 more weeks now in cedar Sinai, and 3 more unexpected surgeries, with mixed results, and complications. He is not out of the woods yet.
Being a half a world away, I feel terrible that I cannot help the family more more and to hold his sweet hand. I will paint flowers and send them digitally to my brother every day until he gets out of the hospital. Its pittance, I know, but I hope several things may come of it >

1. The bright colors will make him smile, albeit it briefly, between lucidity and sedation.
2. I dedicate them to him, which will tell him I am thinking about him and praying for him everyday.
3. it will make him proud of me, and he will see our dear, creative father’s hand in my works as well.
4. These little paintings, handcrafts, gifts and poems I’m creating may be the means for me to earn a ticket back to see him and the rest of my family, soon… and with the grace of God, maybe more.
If you see one you like the or want one of my items, as I post, please let me know ASAP, and consider a donation in kind.
I will turn these works and more into prints and pendants, and other wares, and will soon post them on a new ETSY shop, and probably Smug Mug, for the world to enjoy as well.
Thank you for your visit, and for your kindness to support a budding artist -also a melanoma survivor – and a recovering hero, my big brother.

Flowers always make people better, happier, and more helpful; they are sunshine, food and medicine for the soul. – Luther Burbank
