The 3rd Annual Painting On Purpose (POP) painting is in process!
Her name is WONDER – she is a 24×24” original painting on canvas.
Here’s the GOOD PART: ALL of the money from the sale of WONDER ($995, when she’s complete) will go straight to BRIDGE THE GAP Of Clark County ~ a community outreach program enriching the lives of abused & neglected children in Clark County, WA State (my county!). Visit Bridge The Gap of Clark County’s website.
Painting On Purpose was started in 2015, and is a project inspired by my sweet Grandma Neva who turned 92 on the release of the first painting (2/6/2015), she’ll turn 94 when WONDER is released on February 6.
The PURPOSE for this project is to give ALL of the proceeds from the sale of an original painting to a charity that benefits mothers and/or children.
In 2016, this project allowed me to give $455 to Food for Orphans.

My grandma Neva has always lovingly and happily supported me being an artist. She thinks it is so fantastic that someone can make a living creating art. She is, of course, an artist herself, though she wouldn’t admit to it. Her medium is varied: carved eggs, paintings, clay, acorn crafts… we spent hours around the table together, creating, when I was a child.
This project and the ability to support others with my paintings, is in honor of my grandma.
