Earlier this fall I was asked to paint a hand bag for a local charity auction known as LINC which is dedicated to helping local women with breast cancer. I was honored to be asked to paint a bag, but a bit unsure on how to go about it since I had not designed a painted purse before.
I originally came up with my moth design. I began to get nervous as the deadline approached that people might not bid on a "moth" bag. The fact that celebrities such as Sarah Jessica Parker and Adrianna Trigianni were also donating bags felt a bit intimidating. I suppose I was suffering from a case of artist insecurities.

I decided to go ahead and send along my pampered pooch bag as well. Hopefully these will help bring in funds for a wonderful cause.
