A Heart-felt Thank You

A Heart-felt Thank You

Your support and encouragement is so much appreciated!

The Painter's Concert - A Mother's Love Raffle was incredibly successful because of youJust over $11,000 was raised to help with my son Jonathan's medical treatments to fight mulitple myeloma bone cancer! He and his young family, including 10-month Elliot, and all of us are grateful beyond words.

The painting above was painted during the "concert" against a 3-hour time clock.
I believe I won!
The painting is titled "Hallelujah" after the musical composition in Handel's "Messiah" which musicians Sherry Finzer & Darin Mahoney were playing as I signed the piece.
My beautiful daughter, Robynn, drew the name Dave & Melodie C. of Chicago from the bin full of tickets.
My husband, Doug, drew the name of Ian & Wendy A. of the Phoenix area as winners of "Forever", the 2nd painting.

It was a magical evening - all made possible by your generosity and unbelievable support.
As a special thank you, please follow this link to a dedicated page on my website where you can download your own copy of "Hallelujah" to use as a screen saver or print out as a reminder of our gratitude. (I would be happy to sign it for you if you bring it by the gallery or mail it to me.)

I wish I had more eloquent words . . .
just "Thank you"!
