Welcome!! 15septemberarts is now Georgia Florida Studio! I am excited about the change. This is a place where I display my work and experiences. I am a self taught quilt maker and painter. I am always exploring new means of expression. Glad that you have stopped by.
In another part of my life I am an Oncology Nurse Practitioner. Lilly Pharmaceuticals sponsors an art competition for anyone affected by Cancer. Patients, survivors, caregivers, family, friends and health care workers. (I think this covers everyone.) It is called Lilly Oncology on Canvas. This is a link to the website. http://www.lillyoncologyoncanvas.com/Pages/Index.aspx
The piece above is on its way to New York City to be judged in the competition. It is in the mixed media category and is acrylic and fabric on canvas.
The title is "Out of Darkness and Fire Comes a New Day". It is in honor and in memory of all the young adults that I have had the pleasure to care for during my Oncology career. They are just beginning their lives when life is interrupted.
First Prize winners get $10,000.00 donated to the cancer related charity of his/her choice. Wow, that would be cool. Many of the entries will go on tour of hospitals and cancer centers around the country.
Let me know what you think.
