"RedWood" for the 'Artists for a Cure' Community Art Show

Tonight marks the inaugural opening of a local art show, called 'Artists for a Cure', which its organizers are hoping to make an annual event.  Artists here in my locality were invited to contribute works of art, with all proceeds to benefit the American Cancer Society's "Relay for Life of Champaign County".   As a cancer 'Survivor' myself (happily in remission and aiming to stay that way) I was glad to donate.   My offering for the show is entitled 'RedWood' -- a piece I painted back in late 2011 (click to read the background story behind this painting)....:

Locals interested in seeing this piece in person make their way over to the Indi-Go Art Gallery, where the show will run through the weekend.   The opening is tonight -- come enjoy snacks and live music and support a great cause....!
