One of my dearest friends (Forbes) has joined forces with a group of dynamic women to create BUST: a spectacular evening (May 14th) full of original artwork, live entertainment, gourmet food and amazing "experience packages" to be auctioned off. The proceeds support the Canadian Breast Cancer Foundation.
Forbes asked me to submit a painting to their event. Of course I laughed and laughed (and probably fell over with subsequent laughter). I have only painted one or two paintings before and neither were worth the nails it would take to hammer into the wall. I poured over the amazing collection of contributed art on the Bust website and was so inspired. I wanted to do something for this great cause, so I aimed the bar just above "garage sale art." I call it "In Bloom". I wanted to create a little forest of abstract pink blossom trees to show that women faced with breast cancer can find strength when they unite and stand tall together.
