ScarletCalliope Hope 1

In April of this year Breast Cancer became very personal when my friend, Julie Weller, was diagnosed. As scary as it was for her to be living with the uncertainties, she was strong and brave and has been kicking cancers ass since May.  I created this HOPE mixed-media canvas in honor of Julie for a very special breast cancer research fundraising event happening this Friday at my favorite Tea Shop, Paris in a Cup. This canvas features my Swan Hot Air Balloon with Mr. Bun Bun riding along dreaming and hoping for a cure for breast cancer. At one point I got very stuck on what the canvas needed and wouldn’t you know that Julie was the first one to respond to my call for help on Facebook?  She told me it needed clouds and man is she a creative genius! That’s exactly what it needed!

This canvas and others will be on display at the W.H.O.A. (Women Helping One Another) table this Friday, October 4, 2013 at the “An Evening in Paris” fundraising event at Paris in a Cup. After that it will be available for purchase online with 100% of the proceeds going to Team Think Pink for Breast Cancer Research and Awareness.

Paris in a Cup is a lovely tea salon located in the historic Orange Circle in Orange, California. From french macaroons to gourmet chocolates to a full formal afternoon tea, Paris in a Cup is a wonderful destination and I have enjoyed many an afternoon nibbling on finger sandwiches and sipping some delicious tea.
