Thank you for bidding. I was able to send $500 to Cherie's family.

This framed piece would retail at my galleries for $1500.00. Right now it's going for about $500. All the money goes to accident victim, Cherie, a 42-year old woman who was paralyzed in an auto accident on September 30. She has no insurance and her brother and sister have committed to her care and safe keeping. They have to modify her sister's home to accommodate a wheelchair and other adaptive equipment. Cherie is paralyzed from the shoulders down.
You can also help this family by buying a copy of "Art With Heart" (click link above), an art book (with a piece of mine in it) produced by Cherie's best friend Elizabeth Nelson (, also an artist. $12 (the entire profit) from each sale goes to Cherie's family.

Thanks for helping.


  1. Love your blog, Margaret!
    This is a very beautiful painting. Fantastic color and depth.

    Bless you for helping this lady and her family.

  2. After receiving my amazing breathtaking Art with Heart book for Cherie Stannard, and enjoying it cover to cover, I want to stop by and thank the artists who contributed. Thank you.

    I have the book - and am going through it now to leave a thank you note (as above) to those who have a blog to do so... I much enjoyed the art - your FAMILY is beautiful.

  3. Congratulations Margaret on the great article in The Pastel Journal.
