We had our 3rd Painting Away Ovarian Cancer this last weekend and they just get better and better. We truly enjoyed the company of so many fine ladies. Here are a few photos of this year's event.
|Thanks Jean for all your hard work, putting this together every year. You do such a wonderful job with everything. (Cupcakes donated by Sugar Art Cakes by Kassie)|
|It's alway a special and emotional time when Dr. Kian Behbakht and Jean Murr share with everyone.|
It is so much fun to see all the paintings take on their own uniqueness, they all turn out so different, with the different color choices and techniques used.
This year we did a community painting that we all painted on and signed.
This is such a special time of sharing with friends and family. Many new friendships are formed.
|Thanks to all you wonderful women. Our thoughts and prayers are with you always.|

|Trimming off the inside edges|
this process was also done to the other
side of the map
|Figuring out how to make this happen|
Due to its size, and allowing for the ease of positioning this large map, it was then mounted on two separate pieces of foam core and the foam was trimmed off all the way around both pieces.
|Notice how the edge is overlapped by 1/4"|
|If you look closely|
you can see the printing of the map
does not go all the way to the edge on this piece.
The two pieces were then mounted again to another piece of board to give it rigidness and extra support. (not shown)
A flat liner was used to keep the glazing (a conservation acrylic due to size and weight)
off of the map itself. This is to protected the map from mold and mildew often present due to
climate changes in a piece after time.
A close up was taken to show the seam where the two pieces came together.
|The completed piece after framing|
(If it where not for the color difference of the two pieces of paper it would be hard to
notice the seam at all)
