The Water for Life show is one of the longest running exhibitions
I've ever been part of.  It started out in Niagara Falls at the Niagara
Falls History Museum in May of this year, and was featured there
until September. The show took a brief break and then moved to
Toronto to join with the Passion for Life exhibition at the Arta
Gallery this past weekend, and add to its purpose.

Initially conceived by Antoine Gaber and Angelina Herrera
as a way of uniting international artists in an exhibition to
honour water, and our dependence on it, plus to champion
every person on the planet's right to clean water,
it added to this mission in Toronto.  Here the exhibition got
behind the cause of breast cancer research, and each artist
contributed part of the value of their work to the cause.

I enjoyed the opening so much on Friday October 12.  There
was such a feeling of both friendship and hope.  And it was a
beautiful exhibition.  My work Cloud Magic that had been
on display in both shows was in a gorgeous spot the moment
you walked into the space at the Arta Gallery.

Thank you to Antoine Gaber and Angelina Herrera for giving
me the unique privilege to be part of these dynamic shows,
and to gain a whole new community of artist friends around
the world.  Woo Hoo!  It was amazing.

Have a loving the people you work with day.
