I Need Your Help!

Be sure to check out Mixed Media Monday, it’s all about the Pink!

In honor of my step mom I am offering fine art prints from my original piece, ‘Beauty in Strength’. I will only be offering these limited edition prints through the end of October and the proceeds will go to the Susan G. Komen foundation. If you purchase one for yourself or a friend, please accept my offer of 1/2 off the price of a second print of your choosing from my print shop. I will refund the difference through PayPal. What a great way to support a good cause and get something for yourself or a gift at the same time. Please help me to send a nice big check on November 1st!
Also feel free to use this image to promote this sale on your blog:-)

Beauty in Strength

I just got back from visiting my family. This was my first trip back since my step mom’s breast cancer diagnosis and the thing that struck me immediately, was the strength I saw in her eyes. She spent most of the weekend visiting with all of the family, head unadorned by hair, scarf, or wig. I thought I would feel uncomfortable at her new loss, but instead I felt her strength and was comforted by it. She is bravely facing this battle and confidently making plans for ‘after treatment’.
This piece titled Beauty in Strength is inspired by her and in an effort to continue raising funds for research efforts, I will be offering prints in my etsy Print Shop, with the profits going to the Susan G. Komen Center.

of the Beauty that still remains’

Day 18~Pink

Pink is the color du jour. When I started this page, the pink was PINK as in Pepto Bismallish. I added the lady’s and then ‘knocked down’ the whole thing with some white. I was not at all sure what I wanted to do in the way of ‘hair’ for these women friends, so I decided to go pink with that too, and added some flowers for hair. I did my private journaling underneath and covered most of it, adding the ‘Think Pink’ to remind me of what is written underneath.
