Help me travel to Tuscany
WOW! It’s been a while since I wrote anything on my blog. Not that I couldn’t find anything to say, but life was spinning faster that I could keep up with.
We keep our heads above water as much as possible, emotionally speaking and try to find the positive in life, until the next hit, brings us down. It’s all part of life.
Just a little while ago I had the nerve (yes, the nerve!) to sign up for a contest I think is marvelous, the DaVinci Storyteller Experience. If you’ve have browsed around my blog, you’ve noticed I’ve never asked for basically anything, so the fact I’m here asking for you votes, makes feel a little ashamed. But shame aside, at least for now, I truly could use your votes on this one!
The contest is sponsored by DaVinci Wine, a fabulous wine company from Vinci, Italy that makes one of the most delicious wines. I would have earn my way into the show but everything is done through voting, at least for the fourth person. Four contestants are selected to travel to Vinci, Tuscany for 7 days in what they call the Storyteller Experience, which aside from being an incredible life changing experience, as I would get to see places from my mom’s region I haven’t yet seen, I would be able to paint on location and I would refresh my database of landscapes to paint, it would give me the chance to go visit my mother after. If you’ve read my blog, you’ll know my mother suffers from early onset Alzheimer’s disease and due to the advance of her condition, had to be institutionalized back in 2010, so if I get to be selected as the winner, I would get to see her.
I applied back in April to be considered for the spot as the Visual Artist thinking I wouldn’t even be called for it, and to my surprise, I was selected! Now, I’m competing with 3 more incredibly talented professionals in their own right, so this is where you come in. I need your vote!
If I get selected I will be painting on location in the heart of my mother’s land, and posting all my entire experience right here on my blog, how incredible is that?!
How is the voting done?
I will need you to vote daily until June 15th. Tell your friends and your family!
