I enjoyed indulging in cupcakes (after all, we all know life's like a cupcake), champagne (juice for me) and other treats to celebrate with my family, friends and others in the community. And of course, I loved sharing about the journey that got me to the launch of Mrs T’s Kooky Pants...I even got to do a reading and signing for the very first time!
I have professional photographs on the way from my amazing sponsor Framing Beautiful, but here are some that have been sent to me from people's iPhones and Facebook...you've gotta love iPhones :)
I thought I'd be more nervous about the launch part of the event, but it was my art that had me quivering….seeing my work framed on a wall is so different to seeing it on a computer screen…but it ended up being better than on the screen and people seemed to really enjoy the exhibition.
In fact, my fantastic team made a number of art sales on the day :)
There was great excitement around the exhibition for an additional reason though, in that I revealed a special Limited Edition artwork at this event, which I created specifically to support Breast Cancer Awareness and Research.
|Courageous - An artwork to support breast cancer |
awareness & research
This will be a series of artworks to support Breast Cancer Research, as well as awareness of the fact that 800 young women in their 20s and 30s are diagnosed with breast cancer each year. I was 39 years of age when I was diagnosed in 2009, but not before being sent away and told by a doctor I was too young to get breast cancer. If I didn't go back 2 months later, I may not be here telling my story today.
My sponsor Codeice Prints is amazing! All artworks, shown on my website Fantangle Designs, can be purchased as archival quality Giclee art prints on museum art paper, framed or unframed, or on canvas, stretched or rolled. My art is also available on luxurious cushions. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org to enquire about ordering an existing design or commissioning a new artwork.
But if you would like to support the National Breast Cancer Foundation, I hope you will consider purchasing Courageous, my Limited Edition framed artwork, with a portion of sale proceeds going to breast cancer research.
Of course, you can also purchase Mrs T's Kooky Pants here in support of the National Breast Cancer Foundation, with $1 from every book sold going to breast cancer research. Please note, there are FREE downloadable Teachers' Notes when you click through to eTV Publishing's site.
To get all the details on Mrs T's Kooky Pants, please listen to my Hope 103.2FM Radio interview with Katrina Roe...
