She also reads a gorgeous passage to us from The Rest of The Earth by William Haywood Henderson.
Marcie's own piece is in a new style - fine-point drawing in black and white covers the matte, while bright, bold colours splash in similar, but less controlled, watercolour patterns within. We all love this piece, which captures Marcie's passion for creativity perfectly.

6. Hope Mission Art Programs for Kids and Youth
Erin and Megan from Hope Mission's Tegler Youth Centre are with us tonight. They share opportunities for artists to impact the lives of kids with limited access to art inspiration, education and materials. Even with that limited access, these kids are showing their talent, as we see from sample works Erin and Megan pass around.
These talented, creative kids are looking for mentors. Perhaps you can help?
If you have a creative gift you'd like to share with a small group of kids who need positive influences and opportunities, contact Megan (for elementary age kids) or Erin (for youth).
You can find more information on our site here.
7. Jared Robinson
Jared Robinson is a fitting follow to the art of the Hope kids, because his work has such joy and youthful energy. And a squid.
Jared's new painting is awesome, with wit and layered meaning. He presents a very strong visual that we all want to see painted large on a wall somewhere.
