UPDATE: “Butterflies” SOLD in Auction for the Nancy Cole Care Fund

Please consider viewing the listing on EBay for this painting we have donated for this cause, and consider making a donation to our former student, also the owner of the lovely Southern Sweets Bakery.

*UPDATE: BIDDING IS NOW CLOSED FOR OUR PAINTING BUT DONATIONS STILL APPRECIATED*

From Penny Treese and Kim McGill Stuart:

“We would like to invite you to help Nancy Cole during this difficult time by making a donation to help with the cost of her home care. Last year cancer cells were found in Nancy’s liver tissue, and despite treatment, she continued to deteriorate. Treatment was halted this year, and Nancy was transferred home where she’s receiving constant care.

Nancy, and her husband, were brief art students of ours, her energy made such an impact on us. Her excitement and creativity was moving. It was a joy having her in our class and pleasure meeting her and her husband.”

Thank you sincerely for any help that can be given.
Here are pictures and close-ups of the painting we collaborated on (click to enlarge):
