Kelly Light here.... Ripple has now finished what it set out to do. All of the art is left up here for your enjoyment. If any of the artists wish to sell the unsold art on your own to benefit these organizations- that would be fabulous. If anyone finds art here that they would like to buy to benefit these organizations- most of the artists have links in their posts from which you can contact them. Artists can also mail any unsold art directly to the organizations as a "Thank You" - to a volunteer. (They're still there - still working and will be for a long time)
On a personal note - it was a thrilling ride - watching the art come in. Some of the well known artists like Mo Willems- made me shed a tear with how touching his sketches and words were. Some of the lesser known artists knocked my socks off - like Michael Fleming and Colleen Madden. Artists who I know personally and who's work I am familiar with - surprised me with the heart and sweetness in their sketches - like Jarrett Krosoczka and Kathy Blackmore. The funny ones- the biting ones - the hopeful ones.. all were so diverse in style and approach- but all unified by the love of the ocean, the beach, the birds and the animals. I have a list of favorites 100 sketches long.
I hope what we've done leaves behind the inspiration and the belief- That anyone can do something to help- no matter how small - when faced with what seems like an insurmountable problem. It just takes one voice - one person to create a space for hope and action - like they say in Field of Dreams "If you build it, they will come".
