The Circus
The Dream of a Donation

So…we’ve decided to put on a second-annual holiday art-fair fundraiser next month. I’d booked the date in advance,  but I hadn’t had space in my head to start organizing it until this weekend. It may be a little crazy to pull something off at such short notice, but I think that’s more or less what we did last year, and it was a great success!

I’ve been making many spall paintings over the past months, encouraging the children to make things too.  And I have found about 30 older paintings of all sizes and subjects that I am willing to part with at a low price. So far, though I am just beginning to put the word out, I have a handful of other artisans who are willing to donate some wares. I am not expecting people to donate all of the sales, but a portion if possible.

Here are the details:

Location: San Clemente Art Supply

Friday, December 11,  6-9 pm

Saturday, December 12, 10-5

We plan to have music on both days, as well as yummies, coffee, wine.

If you are an artist who is interested, please let me know.  And if you want to help with the setting up or sales, please contact me too!

It’s a busy time of year for many people, but this was such a fun event last year that I want to do it again. Also, I want to make a creative space in the community for Vernon’s story. My wish is that he would be able join us sometime during the event. It’s a dream. But tonight: I paint.
