Here is a post written by Kris Haas. Kris attended some BIRRDsong meetings a long time ago. She has been unable to continue because she is too sensitive to lights and sounds, and has fatigue. So getting to the meetings on TriMet *and* staying awake for the whole meeting and the ride home is currently too challenging.
So look what she has done! She has crafted a wonderful way to interact with others by sharing her art.
A few years ago, she set the goal of painting at least one painting per day for a whole year and ended up with 10,202 original works! Now, she plans to bring the world into her studio while she does it again!
Here is a description that Kris wrote about her new online fundraiser. Please note that all donations are tax-deductible. Won’t you have a look and consider donating? Please share this post and the link to her fundraising page with everyone!
