My art worked for change!

Hello Pin Pals!
Well the reflections 3:28 show has come and gone! Ahhhh! I can breathe now. Hahaha! Anyway, I am proud of my first solo exhibition. I had a nice turnout--a few were newcomers, collected some donations and sold a few pieces which allowed me to donate 50% of my proceeds to the Houston Area Women's Center (HAWC) as planned. I am so thankful to God, my husband and kids, Jesse who owns the venue (1834/Freeway Films), my great friends Marcia and Mary and last but not least, my son's girlfriend, Christian for helping make this event a success! I could not have done it without them. Painting the new series was the easy part compared to all the other things that had to be done.
However since the show didn't totally sell out, I will continue to donate 50% of all the sales to HAWC until the series is gone. So there is still time to get a great painting to accent your home or office while helping provide vital funds for the women and children the center assists. The remaining paintings will be posted for sale on my site by Monday, April 7th.

Much love,
Your Pin Pal

My art works for change...charity art show!


Hello Pin Pals!
Nine days and counting til the show, reflections 3:28. I am really excited about this body of work. It is a blessing to be able to create 28 pieces that depict my emotional state over 40 years. The work is all new, never seen..it's fresh and different from other works I've created. I think you will be pleased with my exhibition. I have met many new friends over the past couple of months while working on this project. It's amazing how things kinda just fall in place once the ball is rolling. Thank God! There is no way I could do all this by myself. I know He's there, I can feel him. I've been looking for a miracle, expecting the impossible, feeling the intangible and seeing the invisible. I am focused and paying attention to my journey. I am enjoying every difficult and tedious moment because I know all of my hard work will pay off. Not to mention that I've got some people depending on me and this show...the Houston Area Women's Center. It feels good to be able to pursue my passion and use my time, talent and treasure to do something nice for someone else. My art works for change and I am estatic about that! I hope to see you there!

Much love!

Charity Art Show--reflections 3:28

Hello Pin Pals!
On Saturday, March 29, 2008 from 7-10pm I will be hosting a charity art show benefitting the Houston Area Women's Center. I have created a new body of work titled, reflections 3:28 which is celebration of my forty year journey of orderly chaos. This show and others I do from this point on are about me giving back.  I am committed to inspire and uplift the lives of others by donating my time, talent and treasure to invest in God's greatest asset—humanity. I will provide change through knowledge, love and sacrifice. As of March 1, 2008, 50% of all my art sales will be donated to the charity I am currently working with. This is going to be my greatest birthday celebration ever and I look forward to seeing you there. Come check out my work, have a glass of wine and some cake and be inspired by the organization that's trying to put an end to domestic and sexual violence in our great city!
Your Pin Pal,
