sold Still life, acrylic, 6" x 6" Other News: Painter and blogger, Kimberly Kelly Santini is auctioning off some of her paintings to benefit the SAMFund - http://paintingadogaday.blogspot.com/2013/10/an-auction-to-benefit-samfund.html. The SAMFund was founded in 2003 to help young adult cancer survivors recover from the financial impact of having cancer. On November 22nd The SAMFund is celebrating the granting of their 1 millionth dollar at the Hampshire House in Boston. I met founder Sam Eisenstein Watson after reading an article about her and her organization in the Boston Globe. I didn't know any other YA survivors at the time and wrote to her. We decided to meet in person -  that was ten years ago and also the very first year of the SAMFund!  Thank you very much Kim for this thoughtful contribution!!!
