I am pleased to announce that The Cincinnati Zoo and I are partners in a new venture! A silent auction and luncheon in the spring will raise funds for the zoo as well as raise awareness for the botanical gardens. (Did you know there are only two in the state of Ohio?) My painting-yet to be executed- will be the spotlight item in the auction. This painting will also adorn the front of the invitation to the ”Tiptoe Through the Tulips” fundraising luncheon which will take place April 14, 2011. That day will also feature several events for attendees as well as treat visitors to a display of my work.
This partnership is going to be such fun. Both Valerie and Allison are enthusiastic and very helpful. With subjects like the tulip gardens and lions, tigers & manatees, how can this NOT be fun?!? I will keep you posted on the painting’s progress. It’s going to liven up January for me!!! Oh my!
