Lately I've spent many hours working on an amazing project, The Alberta Flood Rose Project. A call went out asking artists to complete a 4x4 inch piece of artwork in any media which will then be framed in groups of 100 and auctioned to raise funds for Alberta flood victims through the donation to the Red Cross.
My painting didn't take long, but I've been helping the project visionary & coordinator, Terri Heinrichs, to upload photos of the finished pieces...and let me tell you, it is so fun to see the completed works. It's also great to see so many artists whom I admire tremendously step up to contribute to such a great cause.
Yesterday Terri & I met with Kathleen Renne of CKUA Radio as Terri would still love to have more artists involved (currently the number is 300). One of the possibilities is that this project will travel around the province in order to raise more awareness and, ultimately more funds. The interview will be broadcasted on ArtBeat between 12-1 pm. The deadline for completed works is July 26. More information can be found on the website at www.thealbertafloodroseproject.com.
