Student Art Benefit and A Random Act of Paint

Benefit Student Art Show

raised a total of $218.60 
for Carroll County Animal Support.  

I am so proud of my students for participating in this 
Benefit Art Show and for showing up at the event
and supporting each other.

Thank you to all the public who came throughout the month and voted.

The check has been delivered and one dog can be spayed or neutered
and one dog will be taken care of during the fostering process.

We can't save them all, but we made a difference to those two.

This little video shows off the art in the show.

1st Place Adults - Monica Daniels and her Pansies won 5 tubes of professional grade acrylic paint for raising $28.63.
2nd Place Adults - Sandy Hirn and her painting of Sunflowers in a Jar.  She won a gift certificate for a free class for raising $25.49.

1st Place Children - Lily Frye for her Giraffe painting.  She raised $14.32 and received 5 tubes of student grade acrylic paint and a gift certificate for a free class.
2nd Place Children - Rileigh Westrick for her Daisy painting.  She raised $8.33 and received a gift certificate for a free class.

Now For A Random Act of Paint
I am so grateful spring is trying to arrive.
 We've had tons of rain and flooding,
cold and wind,
and a warm day or two, but
spring is trying to get here,
so in honor of spring,
I have a number of new works I've been working on 
so today I'm giving you a little preview,

   10" x 8" on a stretched canvas, unframed

I painted this from life from flowers my husband picked from our yard.

Wouldn't this help spring arrive in your part of the world also?

Thanks for stopping by today.

Happy Spring!
