Lost Bridge in the Woods of Billerica.

I am a US Air Force veteran (with 23 years of active duty), who has been battling non-Hodgkin lymphoma, and now also prostate cancer. Art has always been a place where I am able to find escape and peace. In these 3 acrylic paintings I try to capture the beauty of light and shadow. All my paintings are based on photos I have taken while walking some distance away from my home in Billerica, Massachusetts.

By John Smelcer, PhD, CAGS
What do a bear attack, a wolf attack, a bull moose, and cancer all have in common? Just ask this poet and Survivor Man, as one of his poems is aptly named.
