Sandra Ross's watercolor painting of her sister, an 8-year ovarian cancer survivor.

This is a watercolor of my sister, an 8-year ovarian cancer survivor. While wintering in Florida after finishing treatment, Carol would sit outside making garden gazing balls from bowling balls and colored glass stones. Several women asked if she would teach them how to make the balls. The fellowship of the women and the joy of her own creative artwork was very therapeutic. In the painting she is selecting the stones as she glues them on.
