Painting for children is one of favorite activities! And paintings that can benefit children, just tops the cake for me. Ever since I had the privilege of teaching dance in college to foster kids, I have always had so much respect for the men and women who open their homes and their hearts to children placed in such a difficult and confusing situation. DreamWeavers is an organization that supports foster children and families. They provide love, support, and supplies needed to help give foster kids a sense of normalcy and fun in their lives. The money they raise allows foster kids to have birthday parties, take dance lessons, or learn how to ride a horse. So, it was with great joy that I happily painted three pieces for their Night of A Thousand Dreams fundraising event. The event featured a night of entertainment and silent and live auctions to benefit children in foster care. My painting "Girl Reaching For the Stars" went for a price beyond my expectations (and even beat out autograph pieces from Carrie Underwood and Justin Bieber..hehe!!) What an honor, blessing, and joy I got to share with DreamWeavers that night!! For more information on DreamWeavers of Georgia check out their website at dreamweaversofgeorgia.org.
