As we have traveled the fly fishing festival circuit over the past couple of years Shirley and I have made the acquaintance of a very nice lady named Lindsay Long. Lindsay is the Eastern Tennessee Coordinator for the organization, Casting for Recovery.
CFR is a national non-profit support and educational program for women who have or have had breast cancer. They provide an opportunity for women whose lives have been profoundly affected by the disease to gather in a beautiful, natural setting and learn fly-fishing, "a sport for life."
During one of the recent shows Lindsay and I got to talking about the possibility of me doing some artwork for their organization and what you see illustrated here is the beginning of that project.
October is National Breast Cancer Awareness Month and I plan to have the piece finished for a meeting that they have scheduled then. When I post the finished piece, don’t be alarmed by the color. It’ll be a little more “pinkish” than any rainbow that you’ve ever seen.
