Art from my heart will help raise funds for nonprofits, school

"Girl in a Green Shirt Grooming Her Horse"/pastel/7.5x5
My professional career prior to art was devoted to public service with nonprofits, schools and governmental entities. I'm a strong believer that everybody has something to give, be it time, talent or treasure and am pleased to support the following organizations through donations of my artwork.

Parenting Now! (formerly known as Birth To Three) is holding its annual fundraising event on February 15, and included in their auction are three paintings I've donated to fit their theme of Midnight in Paris:  "Roses in a Blue Vase";  "Girl in the Green Shirt Grooming Her Horse"; and "Homage to Mary Cassatt's Girl Arranging Her Hair." The organization provides parenting education and support for families with young children and is my favorite nonprofit. I'd like to thank the following friends who also donated works of art to the auction: Celeste Bergin, Carol DeGregory, Maris Cavanagh, and Janet Amundson-Splidsboel. (Please see earlier blog posting for photos of their work.)

"Quiet Hour," depicting a lovely late afternoon on Sauvie Island, will be auctioned off at Oregon Repertory Singers' Vegas, Baby! fundraiser on February 23, along with "Pink Tulips at Dusk."

In support of Holy Redeemer Catholic School, I've donated two paintings, "Monastery of the Precious Blood," and "The Old Rose Motel Sign." The school will hold its annual fundraiser auction, "Reach for the Stars," on February 23.
