Chaos to Silver Linings

from Art Helping Animals.

Last week I drafted the start of a post about chaos, but I never finished it. My words ran dry. 

The silver lining to the cloud came with a challenge issued through Art Helping Animals to create a new painting to benefit each of the AHA approved animal charities, all to be completed during the month of September. I had already painted two before Ike blew so cruelly in to the Gulf Coast. I wouldn't find the muse again until the 23rd of September. That left me only seven days to paint 12 paintings. That's when I found my muse as well as a new technique for my current series of postcard paintings ... and I finished the challenge on September 30 with two hours to spare!
