This is an uplifting story about art and my first mammogram.
I was fairly nervous when I got to my appointment.
To lighten things up I showed the front desk woman a photo of the “Mammogram Quail” I painted and she started chuckling.
Then another patient in the waiting room wanted to see it so I showed her and she started giggling.
I showed my radiology tech the mammogram quail and we got into a lovely conversation about art.
Turns out she had been an art major but got busy with children and work and stopped painting.
But just a week ago she decided to start painting again.
At the end, she purchased a copy of the painting as a retirement gift for her boss!
Anyways, I enjoyed how art transformed a not-so-fun procedure to connection with others.
Plus I made back my co-pay!
