Tammy: Last night was one of those nights that I will cherish and remember forever. I was honored to be invited to the Ashes to Art Auction with local artist Steve Weed. If you are not familiar with his work, you should definitely check him out. Steve and his family live in Mountain Shadows and they went thru a lot (like many did) during the Waldo Canyon Fire. Upon returning home, Steve channeled his emotions into his artwork using ashes from the fire. The end result was an amazing series of art work that captured the essence of the beast that descended upon Mountain Shadows. Steve also captured the amazing spirit of Colorado Springs...strength, togetherness and love. Love for our city, love for our neighbors and love for the heroes that rushed in when everyone else had to rush out. Steve used his art to process his own emotions... but in the end, his art helped a community heal.
Last night, Steve put his work up for auction with full profits going to the Colorado Springs Together organization who are helping with Mountain Shadows rebuilding efforts. He also had a couple of pieces reflecting the Black Forest Fire with profits going to help them as well. By the end of the evening, over $40,000 was raised from the auction!!!!
It was an emotional night looking at the pieces, reflecting and remembering, and listening to people share their stories from the fire. Steve and his family, Laurie and Tashana, are prime examples of why I love living here. They are incredible people with huge hearts and a desire to make a positive difference in our world. I feel so fortuanate to have been a part of their wonderful journey.
