Benefit Pieces: Owls & Jackalope

In the wee hours of the morning on December 1st, the apartment of a good friend of mine burned down. She and one other roommate were treated for smoke inhalation; another two roommates almost lost their lives. The majority of their belongings were destroyed.

Read a news article about it here.

Tonight, I attended an event to support and raise money for them. The following two paintings were made specifically for this occasion, to be raffled off. Both were done on found pieces of plywood.

"Jackalope!" 10.75" x 13.75" on 3/4" plywood

"Who's There?" 10.5" x 25.25" on 3/4" plywood

It seemed like each of the winners loved their paintings. However!

If you (you winner, you!) are reading this and are NOT happy with your painting, I will gladly buy it back from you. My partner fell in love with both of them and was so sad that I was "giving" them away. Please contact me via email -it is on the back of your painting- if you would like to sell it back, or trade it in for something else hand made (or found!).
