Earth Day 2022

I’m going to be creating a landscape painting and live streaming it on Facebook Saturday, April 23, 2022 from 12-3:30pm at the United Methodist Church on Bryant Road in Ludington, Michigan. You will be able to bid on the painting via silent auction at the event. All proceeds from the auction will go to AFFEW (A Few Friends for the Environment of the World). Pretty exciting!

You don’t have to be present to win but you do need to come to the Earth Day event to be able to bid. I will be framing the piece with a gold and black frame at the end of the event and you will be able to take it with you or, if you prefer, I will deliver it to a local address or I can ship it. The winner will be announced at 4pm.

I’m so excited because this is one of the big things I wanted to do this year, using my artwork to do good in the world! I’m so proud to be working alongside AFFEW to help clean up our environment locally and globally.

Below are the reference photos I’ll be practicing for the final painting. Watch my Facebook and Instagram feeds to vote for your favorite reference on April 18, 2022.

Success! Here’s a link to the live demo recording on Facebook and below is my final piece right before I popped it into its frame and it went home with the winner of the silent auction!

Pretty cool!

These are the time-lapses for my study sessions as I finished them. Enjoy!
