Finding Peace Through Painting
US Air Force veteran and cancer survivor Stanislaw Slanda shares 3 exquisite paintings that capture the beauty of light and shadow.
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.
