Original ARTWORK FOR SALE...

"Let go...Let God!" That's what I call this piece. This illustration was inspired by all of the care pages that I read. She is the visual image of what I pray for all the moms suffering through cancer with a child. I suppose she could be ANYONE, though. I can only imagine how heavy a mother's spirit can feel watching someone you love be so sick, so this image is my prayer for all of you with heavy hearts! In my girls' group (4th & 5th graders) at church we are learing about the virtue of JOY. And how we should be joyous that GOD IS WITH US through all of life's ups and downs because out of every negative comes a positive. I don't pretend that this is an EASY virtue to practice but I am just offering it as a small ingredient of my inspiration for this illustration. I have decided that I will, from time-to-time, offer up my artwork for sale with 50% of the proceeds going to pediatric cancer. This specific piece is 9 x 12" and is done in watercolor pencils on 60lb. paper. Shipping is FREE! I HATE HATE HATE putting a price on my work. So...the selling price will be up to you! Leave a comment with your "bid" and the highest bid by NOON TOMORROW (4/22, EST) will be the proud owner (or gift-giver) of this original piece. Email me with any questions. Feel free to post a link on your blog to spread the word and to help raise more $$ for CANCER! May God bless you and yours!

Michelle, just awesome that you give back so much!!! I have a question though...I know someone who wants to give proceeds of a certain item to pediatric cancer research and care the only problem is that it needs to be done through PayPal. Can you steer me in a direction of a good charity or hospital that will take donations from PayPal?? Thanks so much for your help.

Megan said...
