Eleanor Roosevelt Reminds Me To...


I was honored to be asked to donate an original piece of art for The Arts for All auction and fundraiser.  This wonderful initiative was designed to provide art programs for students who cannot otherwise afford to participate in visual arts programs.  Artists from around the world have donated their artwork for Arts for All Silent Auction to raise funds and awareness, with 100% of the proceeds being used to provide arts education programs for underserved, disadvantaged students. 

I thought Eleanor Roosevelt would be appropriate.  She is a reminder of resilience and that no matter where you come from in life, you are given the gift of face it with delight and courage. Embrace the obstacles, as just beyond the next climb is something great.

Eleanor Roosevelt says it best when she cheers us on with, "Do one thing every day that scares you."

What are you waiting for?
