New Mexico Cancer Center Gallery Show

"Find Your Shine", 24 x 30" oil on canvas, $1,050

“Find Your Shine”, 24 x 30″ oil on canvas, $1,050, just one of the 22 images in the show

On June 3rd I spent the morning with around 20 other artists, hanging our pieces at the NM Cancer Center for the Summer show, “Artists on the Rise”. Below is the flyer with all the information about the opening reception, “Walk and Talk” event and gallery hours. The gallery is open by appointment only out of respect for the privacy of the patients receiving treatment. Please join us for the opening THIS Sunday from 4-7pm. I would greatly appreciate your votes for the People’s Choice award! This show has been a long time coming, I first applied to show here several years ago. I’m excited to show/sell my work for a great cause! New Mexico Cancer Center Foundation is a non-profit organization solely dedicated to raising funds to alleviate non-medical needs for cancer patients. 40% of each art sale goes to the foundation and is tax-deductible. See you there! Even if you can’t make it to the show, of any and all sales of the 22 pieces I have showing, 40% will go to the NM Cancer Center Foundation. Whether you purchase at the show, or on my website.

Step Three: Backslide…(Overcoming my Facebook addiction)

Aaaaaand, start over! I WAS doing pretty well with staying off Facebook, then another Primary Tuesday came around. In addition to my Facebook addiction, I’m a political junkie! I keep my political stuff away from my blog and I won’t mix politics with business. Let’s just say this election season is quite exciting.

I’ve had a minor backslide but I CAUGHT myself this time, before WEEKS passed! I’m still determined to beat this crazy, lazy addiction. My step three was going to be, “Replacing the Addiction”, but I’m human and sometimes humans aren’t perfect. 😉

I won’t beat myself up over it, I will start over again tomorrow. Tomorrow I will work on replacing Facebook with an online web development course. Learning more information on setting up my website the way I want it and not just the easy, free template here on WordPress.

I spent the morning being creative. I’m working on a new pillow design that I will share with everyone here on the blog tomorrow. I ran out of stuffing and once it’s stuffed, I will share. 🙂

Today also happens to be my 9 year anniversary on WordPress! I cannot believe it’s been that long! Counting my time on Blogger, I’ve now been blogging for 15 years! Here’s to another 15! That is, if blogging is still around in 15 years, the way technology is advancing these days, who knows! I hope everyone is having a happy, happy Wednesday!

Get out there and VOTE!

Today is an historical day for us as Americans! I can hardly wait to get out my vote and I would like to encourage EVERYONE to get out and vote! It makes no difference who you vote for, of course I have MY preference, but the important thing is that we get rid of the apathy and make our voices heard by getting out there and voting!
