Tender Illumination is the 10th Annual Painting On Purpose painting. All proceeds from her sale will go straight to The Hope EffectThe Hope Effect is changing the way the world cares for orphans, through families, homes and tender care, instead of institutions ♥ Watch Tender Illumination being created.

Why I chose The Hope Effect for the 10th Annual Painting On Purpose: The Hope Effect is working to bring vulnerable orphaned children into loving families, reducing the need for institutional care, around the world. 

Here is a message from the Hope Effect website:

There are millions of orphaned and vulnerable children worldwide, with an estimated 2.7 million of them living in orphanages. However, there is clear and compelling research on the damaging physical and psychological effects of traditional, institutional orphan care. 

When children do not receive adequate personal interaction within a loving environment, development is stunted and learning abilities are delayed or lost. Many kids age out only to face a future of crime, prostitution, or trafficking.

We know there is a better way. We know every child deserves a family.

The Painting On Purpose Project, which allows me to support families with my paintings, is in honor of my grandma Neva. Each year I release a new original painting on my grandma's birthday, and choose an organization to receive the money from the sale of the painting. TODAY, she turns 101 years old!
I wanted my grandma Neva's name to be attached to Painting On Purpose in order to honor her creativity and generosity, and the support she has always given me as I pursued my dreams of being an artist. She planted the first seeds of creativity in me. At 101 years of age, she still creates handmade hats that we donate in our communities, and I estimate she’s made and given over 700 hats.

Tender Illumination is a lusciously rich and textured original 14x18 inch painting on 1-1/2-inch deep canvas, no staples on the edges. She is wired, edged, varnished and ready to hang, no framing necessary. The entire painted area is protected with UV Varnish so your original painting will last a lifetime. This piece is signed on the front, labeled and signed on the back, wired and ready to hang where you most need a pick-me-up and a little reminder every day.

Your new Original Painting will be shipped to you in a sturdy shipping box, wrapped securely, with a gift for you of a stack of free art cards. This painting will ship via USPS or UPS for US buyers and for international buyers, via USPS International Mail, ready to hang!
