I originally anticipated making a miniature plein air painting or maybe donate a robot poster, but it didn't quite fit the theme of the charity. Instead, I brainstormed on a more whimsical idea and decided to experiment painting on a different surface that I came across... an unfinished birch plaque. Crossed my fingers that it would hold some water colors and gouache.
This one is titled "Flight of the Fireflies", it measures about 5" x 7" and is a mixture of paints, colored pencils and brush pens. It's not in my normal plein air style, but it's more of a throwback to what I also love to do.....draw and animate cartoons!

The night will consist of art, music and a special presentation by Chris Ayers discussing his battle with cancer and the use of art to help him overcome it. Big thanks to Thomas for coordinating such a big charity event!
Some other great ways to lend a helping hand is to donate a new toy for the Toys for Tots program, food at your local Food Bank, a warm coat for the One Warm Coat Program or the Warm Coats and Warm Hearts Coat Drive.
