At 0700 on Sunday October 29, 2017, at the end of my last overnight shift in Pediatric Emergency, I packed up some photos, handed away my medical textbooks, and cancelled my medical license. As of that moment I became a full-time artist.
A donation – an opportunity in February 2018
I have donated View from the Balcony IV from the 40+ Views of Mt. Baker series to the silent auction at the 23rd annual For Children We Care gala on Saturday, February 17, 2018. If you are interested in making a donation to BC Children’s Foundation in support of the Sunny Hill Health Centre for Children Enhancement Initiative, and want a memento of the donation, consider attending the gala and bidding high enough to get this painting. Or contact Joanne Poon at email@example.com and ask how you can bid. The bidding should start at regular price of the work: $1300.
An excuse for a journey: my exhibition in Seattle – in March 2018
