Last artist for Art Auction


Hi! My name's Karen Conner & I''m an 8 year cancer survivor!  
I'm the last artist for the auction.
The reason I do Relay For Life is to make a difference in someone's life.
I was diagnosed with osteosarcoma 1/17/05. Bone cancer in my right bottom jaw.
I spent the next 11 months having chemo treatments and surgery.
During that time I met a lot of kind  and wonderful nurses, doctors, CNAs, got closer to my family and friends and made new friends.

The money that is raised from Relay For Life is used to fund many different programs.
Research for new types of treatments, the Look Good Feel Better program, pays for transportation to and from treatments when needed, housing for family members while patient is in hospital, just to name a few.

I so appreciate my friends for donating their art work for this special auction.  

The bidding will begin tomorrow at 6PM and end Sunday at 6PM

 We had some first timers and some seasoned painters. Everyone had a great time!

DecoArt new Premium Acrylic Mixed Media Paint Home Project

Recycling and creating something new has always been one of my favorite things to do.   The square "shadow box" I've been saving for quite some time and now have forgotten what came in it.  It's part of packaging. The initial C I purchased from Joanne's. The "shadowbox" had a couple of layers in the bottom. Gesso, white acrylic, dry brushed black, titan buff. I used a small round brush to paint in the lines.   The new Premium Acrylic paint leaves behind a satin finish.  Really nice. The background -which is a recycled 16x20 canvas coated in white gesso, was painted with Americana Deep Burgundy. Once dry, I dry brushed some Titan Buff (Premium acrylic) randomly. I painted the C in black premium acrylic.  Glued it to the bottom right corner of the shadowbox with tacky glue. I used a whie Posca pen to write my favorite verse around the edges of the shadowbox.  I used Tacky glue and hot glue to adhere the flowers.  I like to use both. Hot glue helps it sti…
