CHARITY ART AUCTION

100% of the proceeds will be donated to the Canadian Red Cross

I am happy to announce that I am auctioning one of my original fine art paintings in effort to raise awareness and financial aid for the Canadian Red Cross in support of the Southern Alberta Flood Relief 2013.

I created these two paintings as a response to the flood devastation. I want to remind Albertans of how beautiful and inspirational our Province is. These paintings are a representation of the ever-changing beauty of our Alberta landscape as well as the resiliency that we as a people are known for. The paintings are titled ”Together We Stand” because even throughout this time of crisis Albertans have come together through countless hours of volunteerism, personal sacrifice and an unwavering positive spirit.

This is a tangible way for you to get involved and support the many people in our communities that need our help.

Why me, why now?

I am a Calgary girl and my roots run deep with love for this city. It’s heartbreaking to see our city and surrounding areas devastated by the horrific floods. Over 100,000 people were evacuated and many of them suffered damage and loss of their homes and personal belongings. By sharing my art, this is one way that I can help and this is a fantastic opportunity for you to help too!

Please pass this post along, share it via social media and shout it from the rooftops! The more people who see this post, the more money we can raise!!! (Use the social media buttons at the bottom of this post to share on Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, Google +1, Email, etc.)

  14. Hi Melissa, just a quick note to let you know that the two paintings have now found their permanent resting place after several re-arrangements of both furniture and existing pictures. I love the paintings and as I said to you when I picked them up, although small they are full of life. They have been placed in the foyer so that they may be enjoyed by everyone who enters my home.

    Thank you also for doing this on behalf of the Red Cross in support of the flood relief and I am glad I was the lucky winner.

    June
