Bone Art

My sister has a very good friend who is a psychiatrist by training but an amazing photographer on the side. Because he does graphic abstracts and alterations of photographs, I sent him the x-rays of my broken arm (see my post on January 31) with the challenge to make them into “something beautiful”.

Here are his results:

All I can say is WOW. Who knew something so painful could be the inspiration for such beauty?

By the time you read this, I should be in a blissful drug-induced stupor and my humerus will no longer be suitable for imaginative art.

  1. Those are lovely! There’s a few I could see as a fabric print as well… would make an interesting quilt, project bag or dress even! I wish you an uneventful surgery and a smooth recovery afterwards.

  2. Those are amazing! Love and Light continuing to come your way for a speedy recovery! Can’t wait to see what you knit when this is all over! XO

    What a great way to look at our problems in life. Now the knitted bone should be equally beautiful.

  4. Talk about turning lemons into lemonade, those are incredible graphics!. Prayers and careful hugs for a complete and quick healing!

  5. Sincerely hope the worst is now past. My arm was in a sling for several months and all I can say is thank goodness for my husband and elastic waist pants. The bone are is very cool.

    Having considered my bones my enemy for awhile (multiple myeloma cancer – but in complete remission for 3 years and feeling GREAT!) the bone art makes me forgive them a little! So cool. I especially love the nautilus! Hoping the surgery went well and you are out of your drug induced haze!

  7. What a great way to turn lemons into lemonade. I hope your surgery went well, and that you’re well on your way along the healing path.
