What a crazy season of life! I love this bustling time of holidays, parties, dinners, and projects, but I haven't taken the time to paint in far too long. Back in August I painted two pieces to auction off at a fundraising benefit for I'm With Beka; they sent Beka Oakley to an Endometriosis specialist who changed her life and performed a surgery that took away the debilitating pain she was living with every day for 10 years. An amazing thing to be a part of, and even more incredible to see the change in Beka's life and those around her. Needless to say, it was a great excuse to paint, so I thought I'd share the two paintings here to remind myself to find excuses to sit down and get creative!
