Pink Garden Fundraiser Painting Completed!

"Perhaps that is the true gift of a teatime celebration: It fills our cups with joy and warmth and friendship. May the echo of the teacups' message be heard not only on special occasions, but anytime friends come together."   ~Emilie Barnes

This painting is finally completed!  After writing many title possibilities and looking over all the suggested titles from all of you, there was one clear winner....
The Power Of Pink, suggested by Win Dinn. (I will have a package of tea cards for you the next time we get together)


This painting was created specifically for the Pink Garden Tea Fundraiser , it's goal this year is to help raise funds for "A Clear View", a new mammography machine for the East Kootenay Regional Hospital.  For more information on this event and to make your reservation click here:  PinkGardenTea page


For this painting, I chose a deep pink rose because it symbolizes gratitude, appreciation and thankfulness.  These roses are often given to acknowledge a meaningful event with a heartfelt message.  The rose is also being celebrated this year as the International Herb Of The Year.  
I added heart's to the teacup to represent joy, love and happiness.  I wanted this painting to feel happy in honor of all women who have survived life's challenges.  


While the tea is in support of raising funds to prevent cancer, it is also a celebration for women who have survived cancer.  


I am donating a limited edition giclee print to the Pink Garden Tea to help raise funds.  Information on how YOU can own this print coming soon!  


Wishing you a happy and creative day,
Laura Leeder,
Watercolour Artist, Creston, BC
