As a retired art teacher, I am now a very active artist in my community of Saranac Lake. I was the featured artist for the month of September at the Adirondack Artists' Guild Gallery. All my paintings were landscapes of the Adirondacks: "8 Views / 4 Seasons". I decided I would donate a percentage of my sales to the Adirondack Mountain Club, as I know there is a lot of trail work that needs to be done as a result of hurricane damage. My show has been very successful. I am also donating 20% of the proceeds of sales during our recent Artist at Work Studio Tour to the flood relief funds for the towns of Jay and Keene.
