A Call to Art #BringBackOurGirls

Please take a look at this flyer.  If you can please log into the auction starting at 7AM today.  Jessica Sporn is sponsoring this online art auction to benefit the education of girls and women all over the world.  Jessica put the call out less than a week ago and it is amazing how many artists have responded with donations of art work for the auction.

I didn't have the time to make anything specifically for this event but I decided to donate one of my favorite pieces that I look at every day.  It is a small canvas, 6" by 6", a mixed media piece with melted crayons.  The digi art is by Rick St. Dennis.  I made a similar piece at the same time that appeared in Somerset Studio in their Circus issue.

  All the proceeds from the auction will be donated to a global campaign for girls' education.  I hope you will visit the site and take a look at some of the art work that has been lovingly donated by so many.

Take care~Renee
