Kicking or Kissing, whatever gets you through

Kisses help, at any age, whatever kind.  Sometimes my favorite time is when I go into my boys' rooms and kiss them when they are sleeping. They look so peaceful, and still so innocent.
Pages from
Butterfly Kisses and Wishes on Wings: When someone you love has cancer... a hopeful, helpful book for kids

But then, there are times when I have to switch to Combat Mode... "Kick Cancer's Butt"  a slogan in so many of the cards I received from Nate's 5th grade class.
Studio Shot
 So here is a studio shot of a friend's combat boots and the final painting.  This was a commission. I held onto the boots so I could do a painting for myself - to remember to Kick Cancer's Butt.
