Art for a cause

As some of you may already know, my mother-in-law passed away last April from a brain tumor. My sister-in-law said she was running this race in memory of her mom and asked if we wanted to join. 

Miriam, my mother-in-law had a very tender spot in her heart for children. Hearing her tell stories of her own five kids growing up and witnessing how she loved and interacted with her 12 grandkids it was quite evident.   As I am sure that she would love cancer research to progress as much as possible for everyone, I know that she will be even more greatful for the help that we can help little ones in our area that are going through the tough illness that she did. 

This is the race...

The Keep Pounding 5K Stadium Run, 

presented by North Highland Consulting, is Charlotte's first "stadium run" that will take runners up all five levels of the Bank of America Stadium, home of the Carolina Panthers, with a finish through the players' tunnel onto the field. 

This is a fundraising event that benefits pediatric cancer research at Levine Children's Hospital.  When a family is faced with a diagnosis of cancer, their entire world gets turned upside down as they face an extreme fight.  One of the most important resources that is vital to beating cancer is a strong local support network of family and friends.  Thanks to Phase I and Phase II clinical trials now offered at Levine Children's Hospital, familes have access to the most advanced treatments available where it matters most - close to home. 

I added the link on the previous post.

I am selling children's room decor paintings to raise money. All the proceeds will go to this charity.

A 16x20 Acrylic on Canvas is $30. 
An 8x10 Watercolor and Ink on watercolor paper is $15 (unmatted and unframed).

If you are interested please leave a comment below with contact information and we will work out the details. Thanks for your support!

To get a sense the style here are some examples on canvas.

This is the most recent painting I did. It is for the sweetest little boy. His mom said that when he wakes up he says, "Hello Dinosaur."
