It was really great to see photo's of a trip we took as a group of friends to Hilton Head Island or candid shots we took of eachother in school. This morning I was equally happy to see 29 more photo's had arrived to her facebook page -- it appears that the digging has begun! A few more friends have gotten on board and I can only imagine how far they have to dig to come up with some of these great photographic memories. Here is the link to the photo's if you would like to take a peek at the newest upload: PHOTOS and here for another album: PHOTOS and here for the album I uploaded: PHOTOS
They are all just too precious.

I would also like to tell you about an event in which I participate each year. It is called The Yellow Bra, hosted by the Best Little Frame Shop and Art Gallery in Mahwah, NJ. Each year artists exhibited works depicting a Yellow Bra to help raise money for Breast Cancer Awareness. The shop Owner Ruth Ann Hawkins and her dedicated staff, family and friends really put together a fantastic evening of art, poetry, food and prizes. I am happy to report that I was also the recipient for Best In Show for the 2006 and 2007 exhibits, click here to see my artwork. This year things are going to be a little different: Below is the prospectus for the show. Anyone can join. It would be lovely if you were local and could come to the exhibit for the reception but if you cannot and would like to participate you could always mail your piece with your $10 entrance fee. 40% of all sold artwork proceeds this year are being donated to The Avon Foundation Cancer Crusade.
PROSPECTUS - THE JOURNEY - The Yellow Bra Event 2008
Once again, it is time for The Yellow Bra Event art show and sale. This year we have renamed the show "The Journey: The Yellow Bra Event, 2008", so that we can experience broader creative images relating to the emotional, physical, and psychological journey that breast cancer survivors face each day. In the past three years the Event has donated several thousand dollars to breast cancer research and awareness. ARTIST GUIDELINES: Open to all media (watercolor, acrylic, oil, pastel, pen & ink, mixed media, collage, intaglio, photography, textile art, 3-D). The artwork DOES NOT have to include an image of a yellow bra, but must represent the beauty, strength and courage of breast cancer survivors. Think of faces, relationships, landscapes, towering mountains, stately trees, endless oceans -- let your creative energy flow. There are size limitations. The minimum art size is 8" X 10" and the maximum size should not exceed 32" X 40". Artwork can be framed or not, but unframed artwork must be matted. Artwork can be matted at the shop for a minimal fee (be sure to leave a border beyond the image). Please submit your artwork on October 1st and 2nd, and October 8th and 9th between 1:00 and 4:00 pm. Pieces needing matting or frames should be submitted sooner. There is a $10.00 entry fee payable by check or cash for each piece. Multiple entries are accepted as space allows. The Gallery retains the right to not accept artwork if not deemed suitable due to execution or content. The show will be on display in the Gallery from October 26th – November 21st. The opening reception is scheduled for Sunday, October 26, from 2:00 – 6:00 pm. There will be prizes awarded at the opening reception. A portion of the proceeds from artwork sold will be donated to The Avon Foundation Breast Cancer Crusade. New artists, and those that have participated in the past are called to join us in the celebration and participation of this anticipated event.
