Art Blocks for Ghana

Welcome, 10 x 10, Gouache & Ink, 2010

Here is my piece for Art Blocks for Ghana - a non-profit organization raising funds to build a Children's Home in Ghana. They mailed participating artists blocks to paint on with the theme of "Home". Below is some more information about the event:

"Around 200 artists will create original artwork on a wooden panel around the theme HOME. This artwork will be entered into an online eBay Art Auction in March 2011.

There will be art show previews of the artwork during February / March 2011 in New York City and Los Angeles – these art shows will be open to the public. Profits from the online art auction will be donated to The Hopkins Foundation, a 501 c3 non-profit organization for the construction of a Children’s Home in Ghana."

Check out their website for finished artists works and more information!
