Very happy to be donating a painting for #artforbales again this year.
Art for Bales is a fundraiser where 100% of the sale of an artwork is donated to #ruralaid to help our Aussie farmers as they work through relentless and ongoing drought conditions due to climate change.
The event was started in 2018 by 2 awesome artists @katepittasart and @strongsoutherlyart .
$77k was raised last year and that entire amount was donated to #aussiefarmers through #buyabale and #ruralaid. W O W!
I wonder how much we will raise this year! Stay tuned for the sale event, which begins 19th October
I had some words in mind while making this painting, a quote from a speech by 'Chief Seattle' in 1854 "Take nothing but memories, Leave nothing but footprints". 🍃
The exhibition focus is on protecting our natural environment which is exactly my cup of tea. 🍃
Pop in and see the show if you're in Melbourne, it runs from 19th August to Sept 6th, with a special opening celebration on August 30th 6-8pm.
