Home On The Range - SOLD
8" x 10" Oil
I was recently asked by a woman who owns three of my paintings if I would donate a piece for a fundraiser. She is the founder of this fundraiser/event, The Family afFaire, which feeds The Grace Fund, an affiliate fund of the Pikes Peak Community Foundation, an organization that helps people with MS, ALS, or spinal cord injuries. In 6 years this group has raised $600,000.00! I thought it was such a worthy event and donated "Home On The Range." Cows seemed an appropriate family painting. I'm thrilled that the piece sold and that I was able to help out.
Yesterday I went to Summerland Gardens, where my work is shown, to change out a painting. I found out that I'd sold three paintings the day before to a friend of the above mentioned woman! The donation was truly worth it, both financially and emotionally. I know that as artists we're asked to donate paintings to causes. I've read several posts where people ponder this. As a daily painter, I have unsold pieces in my studio and have made donations. As with all donations, whether of money, paintings, time, I think that it's a personal choice.
