Live Painting for a Fundraiser

I painted a 3'x4' Giving Tree during Hartley House‘s gala to raise funds for this great nonprofit in my neighborhood. For every donation made to the Giving Tree, I painted another heart. Green, pink, and metallic gold hearts corresponded to different donation levels. Over the course of the night the generosity of many donors filled the tree, creating an inspiring final image.

Nicole Cicogna, Executive Director: “My expectations were exceeded and it looked simply beautiful. Your artistic vision and thoughtful design made it a spectacular show piece that night.”
