It’s been a week since I’ve posted. I really want to try to post regularly. Being a full-time work-at-home parent of two little kidlings under 3 truly has its rewards, but it sure comes with the case of the crazies around here… and the little one isn’t even mobile yet. Just when I thought my 3.5 month… old has become a champion sleeper thru the night for a week before I had planned to finally get in front of the canvas to paint “for me”, he’s decided to spurt, teethe and have me paint rash cream on his bum instead. Needless to say, I’m back to night-waking again; how is it that I have quickly forgotten that these blissful stages don’t last? Oh right, it’s because I’m just tired.

I have many clients and customers whom I connect with from Florida regularly, including the Orlando area, and I am happy to share that my art was noticed by the Orlando Magic Youth Foundation. The Orlando Magic Youth Foundation (OMYF) focuses on helping children in Central Florida realize their full potential, especially those most at risk, by supporting programs and partnerships that empower families and change lives. Since inception, nearly $15 million has been granted to local nonprofit organizations.
The 2010 Orlando Magic Black Tie and Tennies Charity Gala will be held on March 20, 2010, at the JW Marriott-Orlando Grande Lakes. Last year’s Gala sold out and netted more than $325,000. The McCormick Foundation matches net proceeds at 50 cents on the dollar, increasing the impact of the event proceeds.
I will be specially dedicating limited editions for their auction in hopes to help raise funds, and to be a part of this wonderful event that helps Central Florida’s youth realize their dreams. If you’re in the Orlando area, please do consider going to this very popular event. You will not only get to meet the Orlando Magic celebrities but also help transform a family’s life.
