Update: Southern Sweets Owner Nancy Cole Featured in Decaturish

The story of the painting, “Butterflies for Nancy,” that Penny Treese and myself recently put up for auction for the Nancy Cole Care Fund to help with her terminal illness has been published by Decaturish. (Like them on Facebook.)

Another Decatur business owner, Larry McDaniel of Trinity Title on East Ponce, decided with his wife to purchase the painting and give it back to Nancy and her husband. They hope it will soon be hanging in her downtown Decatur Southern Sweets Bakery, alongside the artwork of her husbands’, Phil Allen.

The two couples had bonded by frequenting the restaurant about three times a week over the last several years. Both wives have struggled with cancer. They have all taken a class together from Penny and myself, which is how we met. We will continue to pray for and support this family.

UPDATE: “Butterflies” SOLD in Auction for Nancy Cole Care Fund

Please consider viewing the listing on EBay for this painting we gave to this cause, and consider making a donation to our former student, also the owner of the lovely Southern Sweets Bakery.

*UPDATE: BIDDING IS NOW CLOSED FOR OUR PAINTING BUT DONATIONS STILL APPRECIATED*

From Kim McGill Stuart and Penny Treese:

“We would like to invite you to help Nancy Cole during this difficult time by making a donation to help with the cost of her home care. Last year cancer cells were found in Nancy’s liver tissue, and despite treatment, she continued to deteriorate. Treatment was halted this year, and Nancy was transferred home where she’s receiving constant care.

Nancy, and her husband, were brief art students of ours, her energy made such an impact on us. Her excitement and creativity was moving. It was a joy having her in our class and pleasure meeting her and her husband.”

Thank you sincerely for any help that can be given.
Here are pictures and close-ups of the painting we collaborated on (click to enlarge):
