Everyone Has A Heart
The Sonoma County Medical Association Alliance Foundation
wants to help you exorcise your winter blues by opening your heart
to the many physical and emotional benefits of creating something
wonderful -- a heart image -- and giving it away.
Whether the heart symbol was initially used to represent a physical heart, or
the emotional and spiritual center of the body, it has become an icon of
romantic, filial or brotherly love. That is why the SCMAAF Garden Tour
Committee has chosen to sell paintings of hearts at this spring’s Garden Tour,
our 25th. The paintings will serve as a visual representation of our mission to
improve the lives of those in need.
We’re asking members of our medical community and their family members
to fill a canvas with an image of a heart. Any medium can be used: drawing,
collage, painting, photography, or whatever moves you. The only requirement
is that your magnum opus fit on the 8” x 8”canvas that we provide.
The heart images will then be sold during this spring’s Garden Tour for
No prior art experience is required to participate in the
Everyone has a Heart campaign. So, let loose the child inside of you
and live in the moment by painting or drawing something by hand. In
art there are no mistakes. You can let yourself go and be absorbed by
the act of creation. By doing so, you will earn the heart-warming
knowledge that you have helped a number of nonprofit
organizations across Sonoma County. That knowledge might even help
you kick the winter blues to the curb.
To participate in the Everyone Has a Heart campaign, cont
act Lynn Davis at 707-539-7008 or firstname.lastname@example.org. The canvas will be
delivered to you. All final pieces must be received by April 21.
