What does “Sticky Rice” have to do with my art?

That’s a good question…. and I’ll try and explain it! “Sticky rice” is one of the crops that the students at Help Save the Kids recently harvested as part of their sustainable living projects. And they have harvested other crops as well. (If you read earlier posts they are also learning how to build and working on their own classroom as well as learning their traditional schoolwork.)

One of the main reasons Wall Expressions by Julie exists is to be able to send funds over to the school-each painting, print, note card sold, or faux  painting job completed helps me send a large portion of my profits to help with expenses. It might go towards food, medical expenses, school books, or clothing…maybe even buy a window for the school or seed for a crop, but each and every dollar I can send makes a difference! So you are also helping-and I appreciate that.

Below are some pictures. The rice is wrapped in banana leaves and then cooked in bamboo over a fire. I heard it was very good

Where can you see my art in person?

I currently have a selection of prints, original paintings and note cards at the Holden Arboretum “Gifts from the Heart of Nature” show that continues thru January 3rd. This event is open to the public and there is a large selection of art and gift items to view and purchase!  And I have about 25 paintings hanging in the University Hospital’s Geauga Campus in Chardon-on Rt 44 between Rt 306 and Rt 87. These pieces are for sale as well and will be on the walls thru at least Mid-January.   I also have some note card packs and a few prints at Valley Art Center in Chagrin Falls.  And I have several pieces of art available for sale at Beach Club Grille in Concord/Painesville Ohio. (they have great food too!) If you are interested in seeing a painting and are in the area of where I am or where I travel to and fro I am more than happy to show you the piece in person.

As 2015 winds down I think back to just a couple years ago…when I began this journey. I am very thankful for the support I have been given, either by purchases, encouragement or a helping hand to set up or take down at shows and more.  I hope that my art inspires, encourages, lifts up and makes a difference in your life as well as the students at Help Save the Kids. I’m learning a lot and enjoying the process and continually looking for new ways to get the word out and my art seen.
