A Debt of Gratitude

9 x 12"

One of the best remedies I know, to climb out of sadness, is to do some good in this world - give to those in need.  And in memory of my dad, Johnny, I will donate 100% of the final sale price of my painting 'Couple's Therapy' to Our Lady of Perpetual Help Home, a cancer hospice here in Atlanta.
The hospice operates solely on private donations and the patients and families are not charged for their care.  The Sisters of Our Lady took great care of my dad and my family during a very difficult time back in 1991 and I'm forever grateful.

This is such a wonderful gesture Karen. The people who work with hospice are so incredible. My Mother had hospice care this year and I have no idea what we would have done without them.
No one, No one can paint this art museum like you can Karen. You may get tired of painting them, but I never never get tired of seeing them, Each one so incredible.

I love this painting and I love the sentiment behind it and your generosity even more.
