When Life Gives You Lemons
I am so pleased to be selected as the poster artist for the 16th Kitchen Kaleidoscope here in Bend. This is part of what I wrote for the program:“When life gives you lemons, paint them! La Vita Abbondante celebrates ‘the abundant life’ we all share living in beautiful Bend, Oregon. While we all face many challenges we are enriched with abundance here in Bend—plentiful sunshine, stunning Cascade views, the brilliant colors of summer, the internationally inspired archetecture and foods, and a wonderful big-hearted community. The Assistance League of Bend generously makes a difference and I have been personally blessed by their HATS HATS HATS program at the St. Charles Hospital Cancer Center. Thank you for featuring my painting this year.”
It was wonderful to be invited to speak at the 20th Anniversary Assistance League of Bend Luncheon this week. I shared my experience with the Hats, Hats, Hats! program during my treatments.
