The fire devastated their entire subdivision. She and her husband and their son were not harmed, but they were able to take only what they could carry when evacuating, and the rest is lost. The good news is that they have fire insurance, but the bad news is that it will take time for that to take effect, and they are living in a camper with few possessions.
If you’d like to help the family get back on its feet, a family friend has started a fund to immediately assist them.
You could also, of course, bid on some of the wonderfully bright and energetic small paintings that that Marine currently has up for auction through Daily Paintworks (images above). These will change over time as the older auctions end and newer ones replace them, as usual.
As Marine describes on her blog, her small paintings are one of the few things she was able to grab, so the auctions can be fulfilled.
