I decided to post this piece here also...I did this piece for an auction for our local Gilda's Clubhouse. If you do not know about Gilda's please check it out to see if you have one in your area...www.gildasclub.org This is a wonderful place for those living with cancer, cancer survivors and their families. It is a safe place where they can come to take all sorts of FREE classes and do fun activities! It was started by Gilda Radner while she was having cancer treatments and realized that there was no where people could go to LAUGH...They are always looking for volunteers to teach art classes, watch the kids in their children's play room (Noogie land, which I had the wonderful opportunity to paint the murals on in our local clubhouse) Or just to stuff envelopes...Give them a call...you will be HAPPY that you did and it is a great feeling of gratitude giving something back to your community. Lets hope this clock brings some BIG BUCKS for them!! The spirit of this clock is to be aware of the elegance of time...one moment..one minute...one hour at a time..For it is our present!
