Sunrise comes pretty early in Madera. It was still dark when Cassie and I arrived at 5:00 a.m. to prep for the event. The Rotarians arrived at 6. Chris Miller made sure we had coffee, and Present Cindy Vail set up a nice breakfast so we were all raring to go by the time the event started.
During the business meeting, Cindy Vail presented the Madera County Arts Council with a check for $2000! The folks at Sunrise Rotary have been long-time supporters of the Arts Council, and their support was and is, greatly appreciated.
I gave a quick demo on how to pour, and they enthusiastically dove into the project.
What a great way to start the day! We had fun, all of the paintings were a success, and some folks even expressed an interest in taking up painting on their own.
I feel that my life is so much richer since I allowed my creative self to shine, and when I can share that joy with other folks, well it just doesn’t get any better than that.
