art benefits many

"art simply keeps me sane..."was i ever crazy? Maybe...or maybe life is. Crazy isn't being broken, or swallowing the dark secret. It's you or me--amplified." from the movie "Girl, Interrupted"

for the hand up charitable art show and exhibition, each participant was asked to write a little something regarding how art has given us a hand up in our lives as artists. this was my "little something." the soiree was aparently a success with all the red sold stickers ...but before i leap ahead, some fasion news...

before:


and.....


after:





back to my short do...melissa, at cost cutters, did such a great job i tipped her big-time... i love it...so i was ready to go to the art show...


there was soo much great art on the walls....





and these:



fabulous friends:

mark and emily



jette, as she saw all the art and my hair





my clinical director and the oncology social worker, Katherine and Janet



kelly and her family and her art were there:




fab husband, grant




and the best picture i have of my piece,

"bird in the hand: 2 & 6"

in all of its off-centered, poor lighting glory


i'm so glad it sold ( love ya' kelly!) more than half the price goes to charity...what fun and yes i will do this again...



so, today, it's cold here in fort collins. oh so cold. high of 67 but it ain't close to that yet. slippers and sweat shirt pulled out of hiding...


ok, so this doesn't look cold with all the greenery in the front of the house..how's this:

doesn't it just make a chill climb up your back looking at all that cold steel on the white-loaf-of-bread volkswagen bus next to the steel grey sky???

have a warm day...
