Welcome to Hygienic - here is something that may be of interest to you.
Dear Hygienic Friends:
A new series of International Films will be shown at Bean & Leaf Coffee house for the next 12 weeks with films from 12 different countries. Even though the events are FREE, a big push will be made for contributions for a specific local non-profit organization. I have taken the liberty of enclosing the full schedule and highlighted in RED those evenings that the 100% of the donations will be given to Hygienic. This is a fantastic series and I hope you will attend and bring friends, et al. Films begin at 7:30 pm and will generally be over by 9:15 pm.
Please let me know if you need additional information, and feel free to circulate this schedule to other potential Hygienic supporters.

I have to say, I'm not normally a huge fan of abstract work, but your oil on copper stuff blew me away. Your brushwork is great and the vibrancy of the colors was inspiring. I have seen 17th and 16th century work on copper and loved the luminosity of it. Nice job capturing that with a modern flair.
