July's four

Hello everyone.  Referring back to my last post, in which I outlined a plan for the next six months, here are the 4 watercolors, with their explanatory haiku, created for the July offering.

Tired of argument
all ears fly off to the school
called Listen in Heart.

and elephant ears
fly off on prevailing winds.
This is a problem.

The ears mingling on
the planet of listening
acclimate slowly.

So hard to listen.
Words shoot like bullets from an
unprincipled heart.

Each 5" x 7" print (on archival paper) costs $20.  Half of this will go to the American Civil Liberties Union of Northern California  I am particularly interested in supporting immigrants rights in agricultural areas.  
If this interests you, please contact me via the email address in my complete profile, and if
you have any difficulty reaching me, please alert me to the problem in the comments!
We will use PayPal, as that is the safest and easiest.

I hope you have had a good July and are heading into an August full of pleasant surprises! Love, S.
P.S.  In case you are wondering how Gilly is...she is doing well!  The operation was a success and we are working on strengthening her hindquarters.

A plan

Hello everyone!  I have been hatching a new plan which represents my small effort towards addressing the situation my country is in.  For six months I am going to do a series of 5" x 7" watercolors, hoping to post one (or more?) a week, on the theme of mending and healing.  The plan is to sell prints of these images for $20 per. I will donate fifty percent of the earnings,  for six months, (July 1- December 1, 2017) to the ACLU (American Civil Liberties Union) of Northern California.  I am particularly interested in helping with immigration issues. The ACLU is a respected organization which directly assists people whose civil rights are threatened.

To make things simple if you're interested, email me (the address is in my blog profile); I'll work out the shipping costs, send you an invoice with Paypal instructions, and then send you the print(s) as soon as the transaction is complete.

In addition,  an explanatory haiku will accompany each image:

"Tired of argument
Ears fly off to school
called Listen in Heart."

This blog is, for the time being,  going to be the vehicle for this plan, but in time, a separate website will likely emerge.  If there is any problem with reaching me, please leave a message in the comments.  Thanks!  Sending love, ~~s.
