Today is World Autism Awareness Day, or at my house, we also it Wednesday.
April is Autism Action month, and I will be donating 10% of all art sales to the Northwest Indiana chapter of the National Autism Association. They will use the money to offer support, information, and grants (yes, actual money!) to families who have a loved with with autism. It's a great organization and I supported them with last year's 10% for autism. The donation will happen on all sales, whether you buy artwork from me directly (please, help me get it out of my house!) or if you buy it from any of the galleries and spaces where it is out in public (support the businesses that are supporting me!) There are lots!
snow day, and two other little gouaches are at Sip in Crown Point. I know we're all sick of snow and winter and ready for spring, but the show is called DRIFT and it's appropriate for that.

haze, and eight other #art365 landscapes ( and 2 america series paintings) are at Paul Henry's Art Gallery in Hammond.

what gets left behind is at the Beverly Shores Depot Gallery. They aren't officially open until next month, but this piece is already there. I think if you asked really nicely they would sell it to you before the show opened.

Back in Hammond, Merge has two large paintings: consideration and before.

And I'll leave you with one from my overflowing studio, which seems appropriate for Autism Action: okay.

I told you there was lots. You can check my website, but my studio assistant hasn't updated that in the last month, and a lot of #printoctober monotypes didn't get posted either. More can be found on google+. twitter, and facebook. Also check the Throwback Thursday posts.
So if you were ever thinking to yourself: hey, self? I would really like one of Dawn's drawings or paintings or prints or something, because, you know, she's pretty awesome, then this would be a good month to actually do that. You can get some great art and work up some good karma, too. And really, you can never have too much of either.
