Mission Health and Claudia's Calla Lilies

Claudia's Calla Lilies
8" x 10"
Acrylic Paint on Gallery Wrapped Canvas

I received an email the other day from a representative with Mission Health in Asheville, North Carolina.  They requested the use of the image of my original painting Claudia's Calla Lilies to use in their upcoming awards and recognition program for their Certified Nursing Assistants.  The calla lily is the national flower of CNA's.  She stated they would be using the image on certificates, programs, and advertising regarding the event.  She went on to detail the specifics and conditions for use.  

I was so thrilled, I immediately called her and thanked her for the consideration.  I told her I would send her a full release to use the image as she wanted for the CNA program at Mission Health in any manner they choose.  She had no idea when she selected the image from her search on the Internet that I had a very strong bond with Mission Health.  My very first grandchild was born there.  My daughter was admitted very ill 10 weeks before her due date. They gave my daughter and very small premature granddaughter excellent care in their NICU for almost three months.

Miranda and Miss Audrey today~

I will be forever grateful for their care and kindness during my family's stay. Allowing them to use the image of my painting is really the least I can do.

Thank you again Mission Health.

Now, back to painting.
