A few times a year, I donate my time, efforts, and artwork to some very worthwhile causes: Legacy Land Trust, Food Bank of Larimer County / Neighbor to Neighbor, and this year, the local hospital foundation’s Cancer Center.
The Food Bank has a wonderful benefit called The Taste- where basically you wander around a lovely ballroom with wine glass in hand, tasting lots of incredible food samples from local restaurants and caterers.
As part of the evening there is a silent auction- including plates that have been decorated by local artists, and this year- birdhouses. (Since one of the beneficiaries is a non-profit that helps with low income housing.)
Like painting the transformer cabinets, this is not my normal artistic medium, but it lets me indulge my hidden whimsical decorative demons. (this one kind of matches my transformer since I used the same paint…). here’s how it went.
