A fellow artist asked me if I would paint up one of about a dozen statues for an art show/auction to benefit a girl named Scarlett. She is 16, and when she was about 18 months old, she was diagnosed with Rett Syndrome. I've known Scarlett and her family for a few years due to my involvement in the world of hot rods, and they are some of the nicest people.
There has been a show going on for a few years called Scarlett Fever to help raise funds to help with her medical needs. I try to donate a piece of art every year. I am honored that I was asked to do one of these.
