Hearts for Anna, a Call to Artists

Oranges for Anna

When the Artful Home found out one of their artists, Anna Millea, is fighting breast cancer for the second time, they did an extraordinary thing.   They learned Anna had no health insurance, a plight all too common.  So, they have put out a call to artists everywhere to help out.  They named the project Heart’s for Anna.  Artists will donate small pieces of artwork that will be sold in a special sale.  All proceeds will go to Anna’s medical bills.

Here’s an image of the piece I have submitted for consideration.  I recently read an article in a health magazine that said oranges had been linked to fighting cancer.  Apparently, oranges are considered a “super food,” full of vitamin C.  The bright colors are for Anna’s bright future.

I hope the piece is accepted, and I hope Anna likes it.

If you’re an artist, consider donating a small piece.   If you love art, start watching artfulhome.com.  When they announce the sale, there will be a great opportunity to get awesome deals on art and help Anna out at the same time.

    This piece is beautiful. What a great idea – the oranges and health. It’s so creative and thoughtful. I can’t wait to see it when you send it in.
