Halifax 2012 looking south

This is the beginning stages of a large 3x6ft concave painting on a concave wood panel. The goal is to build this masterpiece and sell it to the Halifax international airport to hang on the arrival wall and show folks what's in store for them in Halifax. Stay tuned to enjoy the process, I know I do.

This is what 40 hours of painting looks like. I am trying to decide if the scene is too busy and colorful and therefore childlike and not mature and worth thousands..

it appears this painting is finished, another in a 50 year series of Halifax.

2012 Family SOS charity auction

The two paintings raised $4800.00 for Family SOS, amen sister!

up on stage prepping the sale.

Tonight at Cunard center, Summer On Springarden and still life with flowers are going on the charity auction block for a good cause. They are both auctioned live and on stage infront of hundreds. I must admit this makes me uncomfortable but also excited, like watching your children at an art recital. What will the night bring?

stay tuned for more......
What a night, we all three stood on stage and made the people laugh a bit and spend alot to help Family SOS help out kids and families of HRM. My income to charitable donation ratio is edging closer to Bill Gates territory and thats the meaning of art. period.
