Original oil paintings at affordable prices! Could it get better? Yup, all the profits go to cancer research funding!

If you're browsing Etsy, you probably know the special quality of owning something original, made by a person inspired to create. I've been making things most of my life (paintings mostly because I have a Bachelor of Fine Arts and a Master of Fine Arts degree, and have taught in Fine Arts Departments in several colleges). However, this project of raising funds for cancer research is an anonymous effort on my part. Your art work will be authenticated with a special "Thank You" sticker on the reverse. Sometimes, a signature element is added to the painting surface. I believe you can see the quality of the work within the work itself.

If you're browsing Etsy, you probably know the special quality of owning something original, made by a person inspired to create. I've been making things most of my life (paintings mostly because I have a Bachelor of Fine Arts and a Master of Fine Arts degree, and have taught in Fine Arts Departments in several colleges). However, this project of raising funds for cancer research is an anonymous effort on my part. Your art work will be authenticated with a special "Thank You" sticker on the reverse. Sometimes, a signature element is added to the painting surface. I believe you can see the quality of the work within the work itself.
>>>OK, since all items sold on Painting Well are dedicated donations to cancer research, here's a sample breakdown of how the price of an item goes directly to finding better treatments or even cures. Example: $100.00 sales price, Etsy takes $5.50, PayPal takes $5.90 so $88.60 goes directly to a top rated cancer research charity. Shipping goes to the USPS, and overages are donated.

>>Your purchase will help support cancer research through these top rated cancer research foundations: Dana Farber Cancer Institite, Cancer Research Institute, Ovarian Cancer Research Fund, Jonsson Cancer Center Foundation, Memorial Sloan Kettering. As well, donations have and will be made to MD Anderson Cancer Center, the American Cancer Society, and Stand Up 2 Cancer - where PaintingWell maintains a "team" where you can go see how we're doing; check it out at: http://www.standup2cancer.org/teams?tq=paintingwell
You can see where their money goes by clicking here: http://www.standup2cancer.org/su2c/money

>>Cancer, which has taken so many of my family and friends...and you probably know someone too...is curable! This year 500,000 people will die of cancer in the United States alone. When you purchase a piece of art work from either PaintingWell, or HandmadeHelp you will receive further information about how you have helped by the donations made.

I also help administer Handmadehelp.etsy.com which is a collective of artists effected by cancer who donate their work for cancer research as well. Check them out. All profits from that shop go to cancer research as well.

Gratitude beyond imagination goes to my dear husband, family and many friends for encouragement and support.

Thank you for helping this grass roots effort to save lives and relieve suffering. It would be great if you could tell a friend.

If you are interested in donating directly to a cancer research charity of your choice, please e-mail me at Painting.well [!at] yahoo.com for information about our "art exchange" program.
