24″x18″ pastel on sanded paper
It was my honor to paint during the annual fundraising luncheon for Swim Across America, an amazing organization who, as they say, is “making waves to fight cancer.” Cancer has touched every branch of my family tree, and many of my dear friends. Today in a very small way, it felt good to work to raise funds toward finding cures. I am so proud to be working with Baylor Scott and White’s arts and medicine program. They are dedicated to healing the whole person, not just the body. A special thanks to Paula, who swam for me, and is beautiful inside and out.
That’s me painting during a fancy lunch with amazing speakers including leaders in cancer research, cancer survivors, and Olympic gold medalist swimmers!
