October 1st, marks the beginning of Breast Cancer Awareness month. I'm always participating in some type of event to help raise money. Last year, I did the the "All Pink Everything" fashion show. This year, I'm doing the "Touched by Art" fundraiser. My task was to create an art piece with a "pink" theme to be auctioned off during the event on Oct. 19th. Yes, I'm posting the flyer again:
I wasn't planning on showing you all what I had done until after the show, so I can tell you that my piece went for a gillion dollars, but I just couldn't help myself. Here she is:
I named her "Vivica." Vivir means to live in Spanish. Vivi is also at the center of the word "survive" in a few other languages. So, I called her Vivica, which has it's origins in German. It means...alive and war fortress. That's strong, right? If I could have planned it before I pikked a name, I would have done the bakkground in BRIKKS! *screams and throws grenade* CANCER CAN'T HAVE ME....OR MY BOOBS!!!! *ok, bakk to serious voice* Everyone doesn't survive their battle with cancer. Everyone does not choose to fight. But no matter what the choice, once you know...every decision, be it to fight or to live the best of what's left, requires strength. That's what I wanted to show. I hope I captured that...(and the beauty of the bosom)...with this piece. Let's see how she does at auction.
What do ya'll think? How do you feel about the pink nipples? Let SYM know.
