    Margie Lopez Read, Donation art rebroadcast

    in Podcasting

    Margie Lopez Read, Donation art  rebroadcast


     


    Margie Lopez Read, artist and donating all the proceeds of her art


    Margie Lopez Read paintings, and or prints of paintings are traded for a check made out to a worthwhile organization that the buyer and Margie agree upon.


    I had the sheer joy to be part of the original show that Armando Sanchez did on his network I learned so much that I had to invite onto to my show.


    I found the idea of doing incredible artwork and then donating the purchase price back to non-profit, to be incredibly intriguing


    I did a bit of research on her web site www.margies-art.com and Facebook:  Donation Art, and discovering such art work as, Rosa-Big Sweetness and Sutter Buttes (both I could feel connection to) makes me believe this will be a great show and I really look forward to it


    "Art is life and not worth much unless it helps make the world just a little bit better in one way or another."
     
    Art has been important to Margie her whole life, influenced in large part by her grandmother Margie Cooper, who was an accomplished painter.  
     
    She states, "All of that is fun, but I want my art to do more. You see, I believe that art is at its best when it teaches, records a memory, tells a story, or provokes thought.  It is better still if it can be used to raise funds for worthwhile non-profit programs that improve the condition of our world." and” Please feel good about what you have done to make the world a better place and have joyous and peaceful times during this holiday season."


    Thanks to Armando Sanchez whose description I copied and who is also sponsoring this show along with Sedano media group
