Help Japan Challenge

' Tulips' an original drypoint print completed with watercolour and ink has been submitted to The Help Japan Challenge  posted by painter Keiko Tanabe .  The challenge - to raise funds to help the stricken people of Japan overcome disastrous after effects of the recent earthquake and tsunami - features an ongoing online auction of artworks with proceeds going to charity.  Money raised through the sale of 'Tulips' will be donated to the Japanese Red Cross Society (send money via Google) .  Take a look at Katherine Tyrrell's Making a Mark blog  which is where I first found out about Help Japan.  Have a good week. x

Fundraising Auction for St Julia's Hospice

'Above Gulval' below, which will be auctioned alongside works by many other artists to raise  funds for St Julia's Hospice , at the Exchange Gallery , Penzance on Saturday 26 March, 2011. This large painting, measuring approx 91 x 61 cm, shows two hawthorns - bent over by prevailing winds - growing in a hedge on the B3311 St Ives to Penzance road, high above the village of Gulval.  In fact, the central tree is no longer there, having blown/fallen over a couple of winters ago.  Rendered in acrylic and oil on canvas in a lime waxed wooden frame. The painting has a modest estimate of £150/£200 with  50% of the selling price being donated to St Julia's.  Click to enlarge.
