Special Delivery

Artists are often asked to donate their work for fundraisers.  I am happy to help when I can.  It's my way of giving back.  Here is a small piece that I just finished for the Hirsch Wellness Network in Greensboro, NC.  It is a non-profit organization dedicated to building a cancer support community connecting cancer patients and survivors, caregivers, family and friends.  My friend Mary Beth Boone asked if I would contribute to this organization that has made a difference in her life.  This little bird will be included in the Hirsch Silent Auction September 14.  Proceeds from the auction go toward supporting free art classes for cancer patients in treatment, survivors and caregivers.
