Some Color For January; A Sneak Peak Of Something For A Good Cause

First just a quick note: { I’m not sure if anyone noticed, but through an error, my beautiful front page and other banners, were somehow deleted. I think it was something I had done unwittingly. My daughter had done the lovely design set up, so I am upset over this. She assures me that she can fix it, so although I hate to have to have her redo it all, I am very grateful that she is willing and able to do so. Hopefully they will be restored by the time I publish my next post. 🙂 }

Most everyone must know about the horrific wildfires in Australia, and the devastating effects they have had on the land and tragically on the animals there. It is a very hard thing to write about, but for those there, I can’t even image how it must be.

I haven’t been able to get it off my mind that I would like to help in some meaningful way. Originally, I had planned to offer half of the proceeds from my works that are currently available, to this cause, which I will probably still do.

However, after speaking with my brother who has lived in Australia for forty plus years, he suggested I do some art of the affected wildlife. I thought about it for a while, and an idea came to me that I have begun working on. Rather than do a completely realistic version of some of the koalas, kangaroos, wombats, quokka’s and others, the picture that came to my mind was more of a fantasy, graphic style. I did a preliminary painting, and since have started a slightly different adaptation that I am going with.

I will be offering all of the proceeds except for shipping costs, from this particular painting to the cause for saving, and caring for these priceless creatures, and toward reestablishing their habitat. I believe that although it will take time, it will happen.

There will be a limited number of copies, in a few different sizes. There are a few wildlife rescue services, I believe the most well known, and largest is WIRES, NSW Wildlife Information, Rescue and Education Service Inc. Once the painting is finished I’ll contact them and/or others to make arrangements for the donations. My hope is that if enough people see this and pass it on, there may be enough to help as many of these precious animals as possible with this limited edition painting, and the others on my site as well.

I’ll post the painting as soon as I can. I hope everyone likes it, passes it on to as many other people as possible, and maybe gets one to enjoy and to help. See you next time!
