Supporting the Warriors

"Art is the transfer of emotion from one person to another"
- Leo Tolstoy

True that.

The photo above is of a pastel that I did - do you see the fighting? Do you see the strong fire colours that represent surviving and thriving? Do you see that health wins over disease? These are the emotions I felt as I created this piece. George had just finished 6 really difficult months of treatment, and I needed a way to express my feelings at the time.

It will be the picture that represents my Fundraiser.

My Fundraiser - I am GOBSMACKED!!!

My goal is to raise $1000.00 by July 30th, and this morning I woke up to find that after ONE DAY of having this site up, that I am already 1/3 of the way there!

To say thank you to those who are helping me support family and friends fighting this disease seems extremely inadequate.

The fundraiser website that I have set up is through the BC Cancer Foundation.

Your donation goes directly to the Foundation, and you will receive a tax receipt from them via email.

There's no doubt that I will reach my goal, and that I will exceed it. So, now to make some earrings to draw attention to my newly balded head this summer!

By the way, did you know that the head shave will be on my Birthday? What better gift than to help someone else.


  1. Why would you be GOBSMACKED??? You are a sweetie and it's time to do for you... :-)
