I attended an awards reception at the Museum of Nature, organized by CPAWS, and I donated a small encaustic painting of a burrowing owl for their silent auction. It was bid on and won by a man who later emailed me to tell me how much he’s enjoying it. So nice of him, and to have donated to a good cause! 22 months ago

I participated in an outdoor art event last Saturday, called Art on the Farm, and the registration fees are used by the Friends of the Farm to keep doing their good work. About 50 artists participated. I sold three paintings, and so did my friend who exhibited with me. We are both donating part of the proceeds to the Constance Creek Wildlife Refuge. They have just taken in an unwanted blind horse, and an unwanted mare and her foal. This will help with their vet bills, food, etc. :) www.ccwr.ca 2 years ago
I’ve been working with encaustics (pigmented beeswax mixed with a damar resin for hardness) and I thought, why not create a series of animal pieces and donate part of the proceeds to the Constance Creek Wildlife Refuge, and then another series of endangered animals in Canada, and donate part of the sales to CPAWS, or another worthy wildlife preservation non-profit organization. I’ll be taking part in a fundraiser on August 20th, so I’ll have about 8 of these pieces alongside my regular abstract landscapes, hope lots of people come and buy! Here’s a pic of one of the encaustics, called ‘The Gift’ 2 years ago
