Source Of Warmth ~ More Thrive ~ Carry You With Me

The 7th Annual Painting On Purpose painting, SOURCE OF WARMTH is complete and ready to be released on Saturday! The PURPOSE for Painting On Purpose is to give ALL of the money from the sale of an original painting, each year, to an organization that benefits mothers and/or children. So far, this project has allowed me to give $4,966 to 6 different organizations.
