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!


No, the world isn’t ending, so come celebrate the beginning of the rest of your life, tonight at this great event! I will be painting during the evening, and the painting will be a raffle prize! I will also have my magnets, cards and some paintings available for purchase, including these:



I hope to see you there! And if I haven’t met you yet, please feel free to talk to me while I am painting – don’t be shy!!!
