My friend Sarah is raising money for a charity. She will be running a half marathon in Las Vegas in November to raise awareness and money for research for Crohn’s Disease and Ulcerative Colitis. I love these fundraisers. They really speak to me. A person really cares for something, maybe even has a very personal story and connection to a cause. Then they decide that they are going to do something about it…so they ask lots of people that they know to support them. This is a great gift on all accounts. I pledge ten dollars. It isn’t much. But I don’t have much right now. But a little really does go a long way. I pledge to make a 1o dollar donation every payday until she runs. She is awesome for taking on this challenge. Good for her. Thanks to her as well for giving us all a chance to give.
Today’s painting is directly about today’s gift. Crohn’s disease….raising money…and running in the desert! I am glad I was able to support my friend. This painting was fun and challenging. It was mostly what I wanted to do. I would add a few small things…but I feel it is pretty complete. This would be cool as a large wall mural I think…well I am off to bed. Take care.
