Realm Lovejoy Reminder

Click here for larger view.

Last month, author and artist Realm Lovejoy created this very special Art Saves piece inspired by Colby Curtin. Shortly after she started working on this painting, Realm's grandmother was diagnosed with cancer. Realm then decided to make this piece available to others, but instead of asking for payment, she's sending out signed prints in exchange for floral donations for her grandmother, who is missing gardening.

Realm is accepting requests and donations through Monday, August 10th. To learn more, visit Realm's blog or view my earlier post about it, or email her directly: rtlovejoy (at) yahoo (dot) com

I must have missed this earlier! I am all about sending flowers. What a fabulous idea.
