I often paint outside, as most of my work is of flowers from my mother's gorgeous gardens, like these red geraniums. Our North Carolina springs and summers are hot! I'm grateful for the fresh, cold water I enjoy from my Hydro Flask. Clean, cold water whenever I want! I can even have it carbonated if I want, thanks to my SodaStream. As I paint out in the open air, (alcohol inks require excellent ventilation) I enjoy my incredibly clean, cold and usually fizzy water, and sometimes I think about those who don't have water. Those who walk miles and miles for even some nasty dirty water that could make any of us sick. It's not right. And it's not okay.
Instead of losing heart, or getting depressed, instead of giving up on how impossibly unfair the world seems, INSTEAD I'm taking small, actionable steps in my every day to try and help in whatever meager way I can. I believe it's up to each of us to TRY, (please try) to make the world a better, kinder, more humane place. I'd like to see a version of our world where all humans have access to drinking water, every day, whenever they need it.
But the best part about this Charity Ebay auction is that painting is a complete joy for me! I've painted my entire life and I'll paint until the end. Painting is, in fact, my most favorite thing to do. I'm grateful that I get to paint my heart out, and share of little of my heart as well, creating paintings that help people; that's some feel-good fizzy hydration for the soul.
So that's what this eBay auction is about. Your bid on my Red Geraniums painting, and if you're lucky enough--your win, is helping to give clean water to someone who desperately needs it. So, thank you!
