"Gathering" Spiritual Angels Emerging From Pulled Layered Oil Abstract Painting by Fountain Hills, AZ Artist~Amy Tuso

"Gathering"
Pulled Oil

This "pulled oil" painting is going to be auctioned at "AAHA!" which stands for "An Auction Of Heirlooms & Art" held by Hospice of the Valley in Phoenix, AZ on Saturday, March 5, 2011.

AAHA! features both silent and live auctions of collectible art, antiques and art-related items to raise money for Hospice of the Valley end-of-life care programs and services.  This year's event will be held at the Arizona Biltmore Resort.

AAHA! draws over 300 guests and begins with a cocktail reception where guests browse the "art gallery" of silent auction items.  A live auction and sit-down dinner and entertainment follow.

A fellow artist brought AAHA! to my attention as she has a warm spot in her heart for Hospice, just as I do.  Both of us have experienced the wonderful services of Hospice through our respective fathers end-of-life journeys.

I cannot say enough about Hospice and the Earth Angels that work with this outstanding organization!  Hospice treated my father with dignity, respect, compassion along with coordinating his health care and pain management superbly.  Our Earth Angel became one of our family members and extended her respect and compassion to my mother and sisters, as well as myself.

I am so pleased to be able to contribute my painting "Gathering" for their fundraiser.

Should you be considering making a tax-deductible gift, please consider your local Hospice as a possibility and if you are in the Phoenix area there are tickets available to attend this wonderful function at the Biltmore.

God bless Hospice.  God bless you.
