Many of you who follow art blogs and artists on Facebook know Annie Salness and know that she had a stroke several weeks ago. Like many who have become my vicarious friends, I met Annie through blogging. She is an incredible artist, wife, and mother of four kids all still at home. Some of her friends in Portland have put together an "Art Walk for Annie" to raise money to help offset some of her medical bills. For me, a gift of flowers was something that I could do to help, so, I sent this painting to be a part of the auction. Click here to find out how you can help.
