Helping Hands for Japan

Hello WOYWWers, yes, it's Wednesday again... How are you? I hope you are doing well and enjoying this ride around the world to peek at other peoples' creative workspaces thanks to the wonderful Julia.

This week I'm working on "Helping Hands for Japan". I had first seen this on Rhonda's blog, then went to the Facebook page. If you're on Facebook, you can join, too. Artistically created hands will be auctioned off at the beginning of May, and all the funds will go to the Red Cross to help victims of the earthquake/tsunami/nuclear catastrophe in Japan.


The tags you can see in the upper left corner are humble beginnings for a tag class I'm teaching in May. I also want to start another girl canvas. Let's see how far I'll get by the end of this week.

WOW those hands will certainly stand out in the crowd. Wonderful - love the bright bright red of them. Thanks for the heads up on this appeal - something which is easy to contribute to - must head over now to see what it is all about.

Friko said...

Excellent project! Worthwhile and fun at the same time, what could e better.

I had a look at your last post too, are you from the Schwarzwald? A lovely area, I really must go back and do some wandern.

Oh my Carola, your hands are fabulous, love the colour and the branches painted on. Will have to follow the link and find out more!! Annette

RosC said...

Love the tags with the reverse colour schemes. This will be a good class.
Great to be supporting the Red Cross too. I recently heard the Australian Red Cross appealing for funds to boost the coffers which are greatly depleted for international activity after the floods here as well as the quake in NZ. We rather consider them our cousins across the ditch (the Tasman Sea).
Bliss-ings,
Ros.
