Evidence that Cindy is an amazing artist

My wife, Cindy, is an artist. She works in a number of media, though most commonly acrylic paints or colored pencil. She has a distinctive style that she calls "humorous surrealism". In most cases, it is very colorful. Her online portfolio can be found here.

During a break yesterday, I found this:

The medium is an online drawing tool called "Scribbler Too", that she used for some other things. It was done in response to a Breast Cancer Awareness challenge by a group called Scribblermania on the reprint on demand art site RedBubble.

This is not a typical thought process for her. Reading her description, though, she has captured something totally different. 

"This ... is very outside what I normally do. For the challenge, I imagined how terrifying it’d be to stand in front of a mirror and find a lump, or have that first look after a mastectomy. I purposely left the woman’s face featureless. She could be anyone of us. (Even men get breast cancer.)"

This is another instance where I am blown away.

Simply amazing...

Think different...
