If you aren't sure what your purpose is, what is it you truly desire? You can have many purposes in life, and knowing what those purposes are is a very powerful thing. Since 2014 I have been painting for an event called, “Purple with a purpose”, an organization that was started to help raise awareness & funds for pancreatic cancer. They host their gala every couple of years at the beautiful Art Gallery of Alberta. I remember the first year they hosted it & invited me to paint live for donation how intimidated I felt about painting at the AGA. As I was preparing to go & paint for them, my husband said to me, “Honey, they will love you & it’s not about the place you are painting at and it’s not even about you. It is about being a part of something meaningful & you are there for a purpose doing that you do best. Go in there and kill it & don’t even worry about anything else. You will be great.” I felt much better after his pep talk & I am proud that my work has helped raise over $11,000 for this special organization of wonderful people.
