Canvas vs Cancer

28-August-2018
   On Sunday-26-August  Mary-Ellen Murphy lead a special class of her 101 Paint Night. This was held at the Bogota Recreation Center, and was used as a fundraiser to find a cure for Leukemia. Ms Murphy had ten Student who wanted to spend a Sunday afternoon together relaxing , and support this cause. One of the painters was Lisset Torres who is the Captain of Team Beba that will be participating in the  Leukemia & Lymphoma Society's Light The Night Walk on  Saturday-13-October.  This will take place in Verona Park, Verona NJ and will begin at 4:30p. Ms. Torres formed Team Beba in honour of her Mother.
   This days painting was entitled "End of Summer"  It shown a sun setting over the horizon by a tropical sea coast.  Ms. Murphy guided the Student through the process of turning a blank canvas into a work of Art. She painted another version of the painting to recreate the step by step  process on how she created it. She offers advice, tips, and some suggestions on to make a painting of ones own. She stresses that each person is working in their own style, and has the liberty to things different then what everyone is doing. Ms Murphy's saying "There are no mistakes, just an unplanned path to the finish."  While the participants would  mostly focus on their canvas,  they would also take the time to get acquainted with the other. There would be some causal conversations, comparing of techniques and a few brakes for refreshments.  Slowly the seascape would emerge on the canvas, each in its creators style.  With all of them being as unique as the hand that painted it.
