And NOW for something Completely Different...
I've been involved in quite a few fundraising events...mostly by donating artwork. Usually I am not even present at the event.
Not so for the Chico Community Ballet!!
I had a wonderful chance encounter with Deborah Jorritsma and Cynthia Shildhauer @ Beatnik's, where the idea of creating something different for a fundraiser was being discussed. I joined the conversation, we decided on an idea, we all agreed we should do it, and now we are!
There will be a Benefit Gala on June 17th, at the PV High School Center for the Arts, where The Chico Community Ballet will be performing a series of classical and contemporary pieces to raise money for the production costs of the future "A Very Chico Nutcracker," which sounds wonderful.

Now, Get This: Cynthia Schildhauer (one of my favorite local painters) and I will be painting LIVE near the stage, while the productions takes place, and we will be creating with the dancers, the music and the stories as our muse!
Our work will then be auctioned off at the event.
I'm terrified and electrified with excitement all at the same time. I've never done anything like this!!!
I'd love, love, love you to be there. I think this is going to be really neat.
