The day after I decided to participate in this, I went snorkeling at Waikiki. For the first time in my life, I saw a Hawaiian bobtail squid. It was only about one inch long, white with red spots, and it hovered just beyond my reach, staring at me with one eye. As I stared back, in awe, I thought about the animals in Florida and how a disaster like this would ruin our ecosystem in Hawaii. I'm so blessed to live here, and I try not to take Nature's beauty for granted.
I'm honored and grateful for the opportunity to help in some small way. I love seeing what the other artists are doing! Thank you, Kelly, for making this happen, and thank you to those who will buy my art.
