©Painting In Progress, Pink Rose with Tea
Laura Leeder, May 23, 2012
Here's a peak at the latest painting I am working on.....yes, another teacup! This painting is part of a local fundraising event to help raise funds for cancer patients in our area.
The event is organized by local business owner Debbie Graham of Orchard Glass, Creston, BC. Last year, Debbie held her 1st Pink Garden Tea and it was such a success that she is doing it again this year.
One Limited Edition Giclee Print of this painting will be donated and auctioned off in support of the Pink Garden Tea Campaign. The funds raised this year will be used to help the East Kootenay area raise money for a new digital mammography called "clear view". The current machine at the Cranbrook Hospital will be obsolete in 2 years and campaigns are being held throughout the region to assist in raising the one million dollars needed for this machine.
This year's "Pink Garden Tea" will be held this summer on Friday evening, July 27th and Saturday afternoon, July 28th. There will be a Tea Market and Boutique set up on the grounds, with tea tastings and tea related products available for sale. Details are still being worked out, more information will be posted as plans are finalized.
The cost of this tea is "by donation" and your reserved seating can be purchased through Debbie Graham at mailto:potter22telus.net (more information coming soon....)
I am proud to be a part of this important cause......now back to the studio and this painting! Hmmm.... I need a title for this painting.....any ideas? Please send me your suggestions and if I use your title I will send you a package of teacup note cards!
