Today I would like to express my gratitude for the event that was put on by my wonderful friend, Lucinda, on December 21, 2012, at the Bowness Community Hall. It was a beautiful night, full of storytelling, singing, chanting, drumming, dancing, laughing, playing and painting! The event raised $6000 for two charities: Mindfulness Without Borders and an organization offering a therapeutic arts program run by the Alberta Children’s Hospital.




During the night, I painted on a canvas which was later given to one lucky raffle ticket winner. I also had a table with my magnets, cards, pins, and paintings for sale. I met so many wonderful people that night, had lots of great chats about painting and creating, and especially enjoyed the company of the children (I was located near the children’s areas!)

Lucinda is planning an even larger event for June; I’m looking forward to it!

    This made my day – I got so much from this post! 1) I found another blogger in Calgary! 2) I discovered your paintings – they are AMAZING and so beautiful! One day when I am NOT a post-grad and can afford art, I will look you up. 3) I learned about Mindfulness Without Borders – the coolest thing I have come across all week! and 4) This event sounds amazing, and I definitely want to attend the one in June!

    Thanks for sharing. 🙂
