30 x 30 inches is a large canvas - it fills my easel!
"Sunflowers" is going to be entered into a juried selection for a black tie/silent auction. If it is selected and sold, all the proceeds will go to support our local food bank, which is putting on a big 2 day event in June, called Empty Bowls.
Apparently this idea originated in a city in the U.S., and has spread all across North America. In Airdrie, there will be over 1000 hand made or wheel thrown pottery bowls made. On the Saturday of this event, people will gather in the park, and soup will be served in these bowls. When you buy the soup, you also get the bowl to remind you that there are many people who do not have food - whose bowls are empty. Of course, the amount that you contribute for the bowl of soup will be enough to cover the cost of the soup, the bowl, and an amount which will go to support the Food Bank.
In addition to the black tie/silent auction event held on Thursday night, on Saturday there will be live entertainment for adults and kids alike as we gather in the park. The plans are exciting, and promise to be an amazing and fun event. I hope to contribute through the donation of my painting. :-)
