A few weeks ago I was sent a "Call for Artists" ... for a Mother's May exhibition to raise funds for the Women & Children's Hospital Foundation.
So despite a few hiccups and the fact that it ended up as a framed print and not a 30x40 canvas, I was able to offer this.

Entitled "Touch" I hoped it represented the bond between mother and child which needs no spoken language with the unnecessary words indistinct in the background.
It is currently being exhibited in Gallery A in the hospital, and will be until May 30th. You will find Gallery A by entering the hospital via the Kermode Street entrance, and turning left just past the bottom of the stairs.
It is amongst works by established artists, mums and kids, staff of the hospital, Adelaide photographers and local identities (I told Catherine Lambert about it and couldn't keep her away!!)
Now I realise that many of you may not have the time to get in to view the exhibition or indeed the money to purchase the original work, so I have decided to make the work available on Redbubble, as a postcard, greeting card, laminated, mounted, canvas and framed print, with all proceeds going to the Foundation.
I hope you'll all consider going to the exhibition, or at least purchasing an image - WCH does a lot of wonderful work for the people of South Australia - and it's lovely to be able to give something back!
Oh and btw - the exquisite watercolours were used in the Launch invites and Call for Artists - and are by the incredibly talented Emma Kate Creative - see more of her work here.
Oh and btww - the lovely cupcakes we all snacked on were baked by the very clever @Monnie of Cupcake Treats
