Before you act, listen. Before you react, think. Before you criticize, wait. Before you pray, forgive. Before you quit, try. ----- Ernest Hemingway

Helping Hands for Haiti


Welcome. I am so happy that you stopped by . There is so much going on in the world - the tragedy in Haiti is on every one's mind and it is heartwarming to see so many wonderful relief agencies and individuals helping out by raising money . In my neighborhood a group of children have been selling lemonade ( in between the rain squalls) .

I feel blessed that I have been able to donate my art to help raise money . Please have a cup of hot tea with me and I will share the inspirations behind the art projects I created to help out. The weather in Southern California has been dreary and rainy with thunderstorms, hail and tornado's and I decided to think Spring and paint pink roses I purchased from the market.

Looks like my studio assistant, Bentley, has been waiting for you.

Finding inspiration . . . .

Pink roses were the inspiration behind the little rose painting - I added a green French clock
and tea set to the gift.

Here . . . .

There . . . . . .

Everywhere . . . . . .

I painted a tea cup with pink roses and created a gift basket with the mosaic birdhouse, vintage handkerchiefs and little ballet slippers. I also added a white lace tablecloth.

The pink tea pot and tea cup finished off the gift raffle basket.

The basket was finished off with an addition of pink garden gloves.

To our neighbors in Haiti - " You are in our thoughts and prayers".
