hey there say, rlf... i am making a very nice oil, of horse in snow, and one of elk, in snow, but it will take 'til spring for it to be done... late march...

if anyone is good at selling and can sell it, the money will gladly be his...
(my landscapes, by the way, are far more advanced than my portraits, :)) so it will be suitable) :))


i was going to donate one to ken's museum-facelift-whatever-fundraiser-program (but i can do another for him, if i wanted)... but i can gladly let someone sell both, if it will help clark...

:)

god bless, and prayers...
:)

Everyone, as stated earlier in the thread, the donation site is now up and working. It's easy as pie.

Strong work,,

My apologies for the bumpy start. These things sometimes take a bit to shake out.

I'm going to be posting to other climbing sites as well.

I appreciate the compliments, but the real appreciation should be directed at the folks at FOJT for their efforts for making this possible. All's I did was make arrangements.

Clark's next batch of chemo start's this Wednesday and ends on Friday. I just dropped off a portable heater for him to help with the late night chills. It's a temporary loaner for the week since it's a mutual friends and he needs it back, but it's a start.

Thanks again to everyone for the efforts. If someone wants to set up a spring fundraising party, go for broke!

Please pass the word. It's a very worthy cause!!!!!

Sewellymon and rlf, we could just send a vibe to the tribe and meet in Josh for a climbing weekend and go from there. Donation's for Clark and good to reconnect with old friends. Nothing fancy, just fun.

I posted this on another thread for Clark which has dropped off which is fine, the fundraising topic is more important. Anyway...

Bump for The Man...

We all have a lot to learn from this guy. He shows us happiness and grace in the face of real challenges. Barbara and I were out visiting with him a couple weeks ago, and like HappieGirl says, he has an amazing and totally positive attitude.

A few weeks ago a fellow at the pit named Max and Clark and I went up and did Sail Away and some of those face climbs near there on Wailing Wall. It was a great day.

Does the website take a cut, would more go into Clark's pocket if we sent a check?

The fundraiser site does take a nominal fee.

You can send checks directly to Clark, and the mailing address is listed on the FOJT page.

Bump for Clark. Talked to him last evening for a short bit and it's like he "skoffs at danger" - but, have also seen him a few days after the first chemo, and know that when it is tough for him, it is tough. Even so - when feeling exhausted, he is just slower with the jokes and spray about SAR stories from BITD - hahah.

Dear Clark and Friends:

There is an excellent website: cancertutor.com that sells no commercial products, but is the result of one man's research after he was diagnosed with Stage 4. Others in Clarks position have found it helpful, encouraging and informative.

What a great picture - I am guessing you might be the pro photographer friend I have heard Clark mention...?

If yes, it looks like you have an eye that is going to find the silver lining in tomorrow's outing!

Robyn an I have known Clark since we started climbing. We all grew up climbing together bitd. He's a great guy and tons of fun to be around, we
are sending a donation pronto! Let's all help Clark out in his time of need. He would do the same for any of us. Hang in buddy!

The girls love Clark everywhere. My own wife, The Barbara, refers to him as "a national treasure."

That is a great picture, Les.

There is a transaction fee, other than that, all the proceeds go to Clark. It should not be too much.
