A Painting in the School Archives

A neat thing happened recently which has resulted in another first for me. A couple of months ago my sister, a teacher, wondered if I had any art supplies to donate to a basket that her school was making for a fundraiser. I did and I also decided to donate this little framed painting, "Cool Blue Sky". I sketched it on the beach at the Emma Lake Kenderdine Campus. Anyway, as it turns out a couple of parents from the school my kids attend ended up bidding and winning this basket at the fundraiser! What are the odds? And then they made a really wonderful gesture which was to give the painting to our school library archives! So now this little painting will be part of the history of our school and my kids and I will be recognized in a little write-up included with the painting!
