an auction. I've consulted with many artists here in the community & they encouraged me to give it a go. Saying that, the auction benefits the Traumatic Brain Injury Association of MN. The TBIA is looking for art from those with Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI); they are asking for an essay on that injury & how art has helped with recovery. I was unable to draw a decent stick figure before my injury but could create one heck of a balance sheet; now I struggle to balance my checking account & pay bills but can do some kick watercolor paintings, pastel paintings & conte/graphic pencil drawings ~I will include that on my essay. If, and that's a big IF, my art is selected & is sold there will be a 15% donation given to the TBIA of MN & I will have the rest. I'm hoping this will be a new direction to my life as art & music have been my saving graces during the last few years. Keep your fingers crossed. I'm mailing out my stuff tomorrow.
