Welcome 2009

I've done the math for our contributions to cancer research charity funds and the grand total for 2008 (beginning in March), including both shops, is:
This represents the generous patronage of people like you for buying art from and There were no independent contributions in either "team" at Stand Up 2 Cancer so it was simply Art  that may help bring help to those suffering from this treatable, crurable disease - at some point in the future.... who knows, maybe 2009!  We're going to keep beating the bushes for sales and support for this very worthy cause.
Also, we want to send out a very grateful thank you for those of you who have not only participated in making items to sell, supported the shops with giving your time and efforts at promotion and technical help, and of course,  to those who have given homes to these art works.
Bless you all.

Where the END of Cancer Begins..

I was so inspired by this article describing the top-notch research teams and oversight, I felt compelled to put the link on this blog. I know it can be daunting to follow these new paths being forged in order for scientists to work globally to conquer this disease. However, I am confident that one day we WILL be able to look back on cancer as being a thing of the past.

Happy Holidays

We've been busy shipping gifts of giving!
Most of the pieces of art have been ordered from our sister shop, and here is a photo of the goodies that are standard inclusions in most shipments. That white wrapped package at the top with the green ribbon encloses the actual painting that was purchased - all the rest are freebies and information about cancer research.
We're closing down the studio for the holidays. Nothing will be produced until after the festivities have died down, but you can still buy! And, we'll be happy to send you an array similar to this one.
Happy Holidays, with much gratitude to all who have made this venture successful in raising and donating over a thousand dollars in our combined shops this year.
Blessings to you all.
