Have (he)ART


IMG_5636Meet Greta Van Campen, a young Maine artist who just happens to have a show in Houston this month.  Greta travels the U.S. recording what she sees and interpreting it in her unique style.  

IMG_5635Wherever she shows, her work is reflective of the region and has resulted in quite a following throughout the country.

Afternoon12:31:15I like her meticulously done creations, but what I like even better is Greta’s desire to make a difference.  She feels very blessed to have enjoyed success at her young age, and while she doesn’t feel she yet has the resources for significant philanthropic giving she has found an alternative.

1452521794976This year Greta plans to auction a small painting each week that interprets the ever changing view outside her window in Tenants Harbor, Maine.  The successful bidder donates the bid amount to a charity of his/her choice, sends the receipt to Greta and receives a jewel of a painting in return.  Can you think of a better win/win?

Mine!

I plan on bidding frequently in hope of acquiring several of Greta’s little gems, at the same time donating to a few of my favorite charities.  I am touched by her desire to give back and excited at the prospect of having my own collection of her small pieces.

I hope you will join me in supporting Greta’s generous heart.  For more information, take a look here.  Then follow along until you find your favorite painting and bid, bid, bid.  I’ll try real hard not to outbid you!

i so appreciate your visit and the comments you leave behind
