I love to paint….and I love to do different things. So here is a peek at some of the things I do that go along with my artwork. I love to support charities, but I have one stipulation. The work must be relevant to the charity, and if I have an opportunity to perform then I’m in. Please contact me if you want to add an Artistic Flair to your favorite fundraiser.
AARCS Fundraising Night
A fun event night with great music and Art. Several Artists painting through the evening. All completed paintings were auctioned off at the end of the night to raise funds for the Alberta Animal Rescue Crew Society. I finished three paintings, plus a collaborative piece with a couple of other Artists.
Shortly after the fundraiser I completed the adoption of a feral cat into my family. Missy (aka Monica) was not used to being around people, but has adjusted our loving home.
Leigton Art Centre Community Participation Painting
Many guests who came by the Centre on a beautiful sunny Saturday got to lend a hand to this Abstract Triptych. Lead by Karen Biko and pulled together by her also, this piece is owned by the Leighton Art Centre and is on display in their offices.
Twelve artists compete to finish a themed painting in half an hour in front of a live audience. Charity funds go to the Animal…..
White hats were distributed to artists to be painted. All the hats were to be auctioned off and the funds distributed to the charity…. Unfortunately because of the flooding in Calgary, the auction was postponed.
