Painting #94 of Free Painting Giveaway - Mark Twain Flowers
I received this message and it was one that I couldn't just let sit in the stack of requests I have. That's why today's piece is a very special one!
"Hi! I was wondering if you have any pieces about beating cancer. My cousin just found out 3 days ago that after being in remission for almost 7 years to the day she has to go into round two of acute myelogenous luekemia and will be staying at the UW. I really don't know what to say to her. If you do I know she would love it! I would so greatly appreciate it. Thank you for your wonderful artwork and for taking the time to read this."
I've been racking my brain trying to think of a painting that would say what someone would need it to say when they didn't have the words themselves. Then I came across a Mark Twain quote which seemed absolutely perfect.
"Twenty Years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn't do than by the ones that you did do." --Mark Twain
Then I picked colors that make me happy and hoped that it would translate to whom it is being given. Overall I feel like this painting means much more than it seems at face value.
I'm also listing this painting on Fine Art America for sale as prints. To help pay for the treatment of this I am going to donate 50% of the profits of the sales of the prints to the person who asked me for this painting. I'd love if you'd help with this endeavor by purchasing a print, or even just a greeting card so we can all do some good!
