January 9-10, 2009: Save the dates!

Postcards From the Edge
A Benefit for Visual AIDS
If you never thought $75 could get you one of my drawings, think again. Here’s an opportunity to buy one or more original pieces of postcard-sized art, ramp up your collection and support an excellent cause all at once!  I am very proud to have donated a piece to this benefit once again. What a great way to start the year!
