Even though this painting is titled "End of a Long Day" I do have to say that in reality today is the "end of a long month"! Between traveling, kicking off the "Artists Helping Artists" blog, painting, commissions and way too many hours at my computer marketing my art ... I am tired!
I am so looking forward to August! My oldest son is swimming at the National Championships, we have a beach vacation scheduled and all three boys are home ... so I am a very happy mother and wife! I will enjoy every single day this month because I can't even stand to bear the thought that next month the boys will be back in sch**l (I can't even type the dreaded word!).
I finished my newsletter a few minutes ago (quite pathetic since it is my July newsletter and today is the last day of July ... Dreama and I have been very tardy this month!). I do want to share with you a new program I kicked off in my newsletter today. If you recall, I sold a painting earlier this week and donated all of the proceeds to the Avon Walk for Breast Cancer. I have decided to sell a special collection of "Pink Power" notecards (they are a set of six for $20, including shipping) and I am going to donate all of the profits to the Avon Walk. This is a cause very dear to my heart and I would love it if you would purchase some of these cards and allow me to make a donation on your behalf! Click here for more info. Join me in fighting this disease that affects one out of every eight women!
