The soft free-fall of a feather swoops from side to side, being carried by it's own momentum, soon to be swirled into the ripples of a pond gathering it's momentum from the tossing of a pebble.
Two quiet forces of nature equaling a feeling of peace.
But wait...what if a foreign substance like crude oil causes the ripples?
Friends, this week Illustration Friday is asking us to participate in a fundraiser for the animals in the Gulf left to fend for themselves in this more than sticky, life-threatening situation.
As artists, we have been asked to make an ATC that can be sold for $10, all proceeds going to either The Institute For Marine Mammal Studies (http://www.imms.org/) or The International Bird Rescue Research Center (http://www.ibrrc.org/).
Every penny raised will go to these organizations. When the card sells we are emailed the name of the buyer/donor and we sign them and mail them with our thanks and blessings.
This idea is inspired by Kelly Light. Visit this blog at http://ripplesketches.blogspot.com/
to see what all of these wonderful artists are doing to help the cause.
Here are my ATC's below that I will link to the blog for purchase.
I know they're hard to look at, but we all have to face this situation and do what we can.
Blessings of gratitude,
Thank you on behalf of those who have no voice.
