This year, me and the BRG are not doing Robert's Snow . While it's a relief not running a fundraiser, the cause is still something close to our hearts.
Which is why Anna and I have joined THE PET PROJECT: PICTURE BOOK ART FROM THE HEART. It's an illustration show and charitable online auction with a unique bent. Each of the 29 illustrators involved have chosen their favorite charity or 'pet project' for their illustration's bidding to benefit. It's kind of like Robert's Snow, but not on snowflakes and only 29 artists who chose their own charity.
So we, of course, have chosen the Dana-Farber Cancer Institute as our charity. My piece is an original painting that I've posted above. Make it go for big bucks!
The auction opens on eBay on 10/5/06. If you would like to be alerted when the auction opens, enter your email address at The Pet Project Website: http://www.mypetproject.org/
Anna and I are going to be at the exhibit opening on Oct. 5th, so say hello if you are in the area. But regardless of where you're located, bid away!
If you think about it, I bet you know someone close you who has had cancer or has been affected by it and here's a chance to help. I don't want to go on and on about it, as I've said it already here during the Robert's Snow event, so suffice to say bidding for our art is for a GREAT cause.
Opening: Thursday, October 5, 2006 from 6:00-8:00 PM
Zero Station 222 Anderson Street, Portland, Maine
