Two Czech Dancers

This painting is of two very good friends, Cookie Tuma and Cindy Sartori.  When one of them got cancer and lost her hair, the other shaved off her hair in solidarity.  Although it appeared a somewhat strange, they both continued to dance in their native costumes. . .without hair.  It was a statement of their sense of solidarity.  The painting was submitted to a contest by Eli Lilly Company for art related to cancer survival
