Beth and I were guests at Project Upstream’s Gala Fundraising Reception, Dinner and Auction, November 22, 2012 at Ashbury College in Ottawa. “Carrefour du village, St-Joseph-de-la-Rive, Charlevoix”, the 24” x 30” oil on canvas painting I donated was the featured live auction item. It sold for $1700. The funds raised go to programs for youth mental health.
I donated this 36″ x 48″ oil on canvas painting to help the efforts to save the South March Highlands. The painting was auctioned on eBay from Dec. 5 to 15, and the $4,000 raised was contributed to the cause.
