Donated new paintings to local non-profit art auctions
It's been a few years, but I'm trying my hand at painting again.
The pieces shown here were inspired by and made for particular non-profit organizations' upcoming fund-raising events - a tree for GRuB, and a triptych of "abstract film frames" paintings for the Olympia Film Society.
I just started volunteering with GRuB, Garden Raised Bounty, last month - what a fantastic organization! (I've heard the "u" stands for "urban" or "you".) Their silent art auction is happening today at Olympia's beautiful Schmidt Mansion, across from the Olympia Brewery:
This small 5x5 acrylic latex painting on canvas was inspired by an apple tree in a back corner of the farm which produces pretty delicious green fruit. As one GRuB staffer described, "they taste like fall" - and they do!
The Olympia Film Society's silent art auction is happening this upcoming Fall Arts Walk, October 1st (Friday), starting at 5pm in the mezzanine, and don't miss this chance to also see the animated films of Marge Brown and a live performance by Flamenco Luz!
