Donations To Support Good Causes

I recently taught a workshop for the Federation Of Canadian Artists.  It was a fabulous workshop and you can read about it and see some photos from it by clicking here.  I decided to donate the painting to the group.  They use it as a fundraiser for the food bank.  A very worthwhile cause.  This is the finished painting.

A friend of mine, Vince Fowler, is ex-military and a huge supporter of the veterans food bank.  He hates to see anyone who has fought for his country need to worry about having enough to eat.  He recently had a fundraiser for the Veterans Food Bank and this is the painting I donated for the silent auction.  This was my first attempt at acrylic in probably 3 years.  It’s obviously very different from watercolour but it was still fun to do.

It always feels good to give back and I was pleased to be able to so.
