It has been awhile since I have blogged! So much has happened since October, it is hard to know where to begin.

2013 promises to be an eventful year!  I have taking on a big challenge. I started running last March with the goal of running 5 km without stopping. I used to run years ago and was able to accomplish that but babies, time, and lack of motivation kept me from getting back to it. I finally decided this was right time. In April, I achieved that goal and I remember how excited I was. It was SO hard for me to get there, but I did. Since then I have participated in two 5 km runs, one 10 km run, and a 7 km run.

I have recently committed to a taking on a new challenge. I have decided to run a 1/2 marathon (21 km) in April, in Edinburgh Scotland with the Team in Training Program with the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society.

My challenge is to raise $6000 to fight blood cancer.

Cancer has affected my life by taking my mother Gladys at the young age of 40. It is still affecting those I care about.

What does this have to do with my art? Well, all proceeds from the sale of my art until the end of April is going to this cause.

I am so appreciative of those who have bought my artwork, and commissioned paintings to raise money for a cause that is important to me.

Thank for all of the support!
