The Healing Power of Nature 2021 Calendar

It's certainly been an interesting year. Over the past seven months I have focused on creating works of art to inspire and hopefully bring a sense of well being in this strange world we are now living in.

The past three months have been really exciting with three Live Charity Art Shows on Facebook featuring 19 paintings to benefit BikeMS,  an annual fundraising ride. This year, the event was held as a virtual ride BikeMS: Inside Out due to the pandemic. I'm looking forward to riding with the family next year, as a member of the United by Design team.

It was challenging to create a theme for each show. I researched subjects for a Southwest theme, a Colorado theme and a St. Louis theme. Then I spent countless hours working on the paintings. Sometimes, I would just stare at a blank canvas and wonder if it was really worth it. Knowing that I was doing this to help support those living with MS was a reality check. It quickly jolted me into working even harder to create something that would be enjoyed for years to come.

I am truly overwhelmed with your generosity in supporting my funding raising goal. Together, we raised more than $2,600 to help fuel cutting-edge MS research and critical services to ensure people affected by this devastating, unpredictable disease have the resources they need to live their best lives.
