Briggs watermedia painting, La Vita Vibrante, was painted for the event publicity and as part of her Italian Series.
“I discovered my love for all things Italian on my painting trips to Italy—I appreciate the outlook on life there and feel that same connection here in Bend. My previous painting for the 2013 event The Abundant Life, shared my immense gratitude following my cancer treatments. I have personally experienced the giving hearts of the members of the Assistance League of Bend as they were there for me when I was going through chemotherapy.”
With a joyful colorful life, Briggs is known for her sun-drenched paintings, sharing her passion as an art instructor and for her positive outlook. She will have original paintings framed and unframed, giclee prints and cards for sale at the event and is donating 25 percent of all her sales to the Assistance League of Bend.
