Race for the Cure, Shanghai Style
by CB Woodling, c. 2103
A friend who liked my Derby Duck series asked me to create a painting with my Derby Ducks in Shanghai, helping with the Race for the Cure. So here they are, in a Dragon Boat, painted in the now well-known pink for the fight against Breast Cancer. Cancer knows no economic or political borders, and the race for the cure is a worldwide quest, so my very American Derby Ducks have also gone world-wide. The art is colorful to celebrate life, and the brilliant sun is for hope. So thanks to Dorothy for her inspiration for the painting. The painting was completed just in time for Breast Cancer month in October.
