As an artist I am often asked to donate work to a good cause. I consider this an honour to be asked but I am also thoughtful about the organization, is it something I really believe in and the audience, how would my work be received. With these considerations I am selective about my donations. 

Jennifer Ashleigh Foundation, is one organization that I support fully, both in the past and this year for their Gala Friday. Details here

Crisis over .... I think I retrieved all but one of my blog posts that I deleted yesterday. If anyone out there does it look for the "cache" of your page and copy and paste into a new post. 
Tedious and time consuming but now it is done...going to follow my tech support 's advise and back up everything.
Lesson learned!

The new blogger has deleted my posts from October on .... very aggravating to say the least. Working on getting them back but in the meantime here is a copy of the invitation for the upcoming show.

Ozzy-it's not easy being green

My cats love to help me paint. They love the music and the places to poke around in my studio space. They do not go in there unless I am working. 

Today I was cleaning 20 palettes and adding paint for the Aphasia Centre's Art for Communication program next week when Ozzy decided to help by jumping into the wet watercolour paint. One white cat with red and green fur, feet, stomach and face! 
An emergency bath and he is good as new [stomach fur had a slight green tinge, actually decided to cut it out seemed easier than bathing him again]

Very glad it was watercolour paint and not acrylic!
