Strength In Numbers

Strength in Numbers (c)Betty Refour - 2009 mixed media on paper

I belong to the Etsy Street Team, Etsy Twitter. We are a group of sellers on the handmade site Etsy who also Tweet. One of our members, Joyce Richards was recently diagnosed with lung cancer and then later found that it had spread to her brain. Our team is doing a variety of fund raising events to help raise funds for Joyce and this is my contribution. Reproductions of this painting are for sale in my etsy shop with 50% of the proceeds being donated to a fund that has been started to help Joyce offset the cost of her rising medical bills. I truly do believe that there is strength in numbers.

Please visit the EtsyTwitter Team and Punky Jane blogs to find out more about what you can do to help Joyce. Have a great day everybody thanks for stopping by.

Really enjoy the touches of warm on the cool canvas. Your blues are doing something cool in describing shapes and forming shadows. How big is this one?
