Artists get so many requests to donate paintings,
that it's a challenge to decide what and who to give to.
I figure, it's a great way to get your name out there
AND help a good cause.
(Better to have your work on someone's wall, than in your studio!)
AND it seems like every time I donate something,
I make a contact of some kind
that leads to a sale down the road.
A "win win" situation, all the way around.
Rule of thumb:
Only donate work that YOU would bid on!

|This woman very diligently and quietly "copied" this image.|
(It's of an acrylic painting by my friend Page Railsback.)
|Barbara even put the chair in!|
|Lorraine was a watercolorist on the Cape.|
Look how she modeled the vase!
|Bob told me he wasn't going to paint. |
Then an aid told me he was into baseball.
We mixed up some blue and talked about what teams wear blue uniforms.
I told him to make a mark in each color for the teams that wore that color.
Orange was Baltimore. Red cardinals.
Can you see how he made the green mark an "A"?
|This gal is just the happiest and agreeable of the bunch.|
She "dances" the whole time she's there.
