More Hope

I received an email from my friend Meghan this morning. You might remember her from the WPIG art auction, or from surprising me by buying my art donation named Hope that she then turned into a fundraiser for my medical funds. Anyway, Megs emailed me and asked if I would be interested in donating one of my prints to an art auction that raises funds for uncompensated care at Seattle Children's hospital. How awesome is that! Meghan is so connected, and she always comes up with the best ideas.


When I painted and donated to the WPIG auction, I created a variation of one of my favorite original pieces. When it came to naming it, I sat in a chair and stared at the completed canvas. The first word that came to my mind was HOPE. Little did I realize that it signified hope not only for me, but also for those benefiting at Ryther (the organization benefiting from the WPIG auction), and now hopefully - there's that word again - it will benefit some children in need of medical care. I'm honored to get to help, and thank you to Meghan for facilitating that. Hope is such a beautiful word, and to me it signifies such a variety of emotions like perseverance, belief, happiness, and solidarity.

Here's some information if you want to attend the second annual Bids For Kids, silent and live auction. Somehow, I just know it will be a lot of fun!
