 :painting: It finally happened. I have a buyer that will be purchasing my first two paintings.  As soon as I receive the "donation" I will be giving it to I V Hope 4 Haiti.  I'm not sure how far $150 will go, but it's a start.  This has given me more purpose and encouragement to paint.  I have an idea for a couple of paintings since my heart continues to break for the Haitians, but I'll need pictures.  Hope to post ideas here, but that may be early next year.

I thank you Dennis, Noland (and Val too!) from the bottom of my heart for the coaching and encouragement.  Many more paintings to do, but taking things a bit more deliberate and planned.

Congratulations Kelley.  You never forget the first sale, and great cause too.

Thank you bottleman.  Many more :painting: to come.  I appreciate the kudos and encouragement. 

The cause is a bit personal to me.  There was a mal-nourished girl that was literally eating mud cakes because there was no food. She didn't make it, but that is a story amongst thousands.  I am doing the only thing I know how since I couldn't raise enough money to go there myself.  Thank you.
