The gift of a painting to an individual or organization is something that keeps on giving to all individuals who see it and experience it. I feel it is important to give back to my community and support togetherness – which as a Vancouver artist, I am able to do through donations. Past donations include BC Children’s Hospital Foundation, and schools in my neighbourhood.
This December, I will be donating a painting to the VGH & UBC Hospital Foundation, and I am enlisting the help of my community.
I would like to know… what inspires you?
In many posts I talk about the things that influence my daily life and art. Inspiration can come from a variety of sources, including nature, environments, interactions and relationships, or even the mundane. These experiences are combined and guide my paintings. With the holiday season approaching, and community togetherness in mind, I want to involve others in this VGH & UBC Hospital Foundation donation by using YOUR inspirations!
Post a photo on Facebook, Twitter, or Instagram of what inspires YOU and include the hashtag #MyInspirationGS. On December 7th one photo will be chosen as inspiration for the donation painting and one lucky contributor will win a framed, signed print of the donated VGH painting!
