Paintings for a Good Cause!

Posted by on May 17, 2019 in Paintings

It’s time to throw another art bomb at the patriarchy. I’m offering up a dozen paintings for auction on eBay, and 100% of the proceeds will go to either the ACLU or Planned Parenthood. That’s right, every single penny you spend will benefit one of these two groups–I’m not keeping anything for myself. These are mostly oil paintings, but for the first time I’m including a couple of watercolors.

I started doing this after the 2016 election, when I was feeling hopeless and frightened and not really sure what the point of painting was. Why bother with pictures of pretty places, when our world was about to be upended in unpredictable and terrifying ways?

But you know, painting keeps me sane. It’s a lovely escape to paint a pretty picture of a pretty place I’ve been. So I decided that I would absolutely not stop painting, but that I would sell every single thing I painted to benefit groups that are fighting the good fight. Now I hope you’ll pitch in, bid on a painting, share this with your friends, and help me raise some funds. Overthrowing the patriarchy is not cheap. Your donations matter.

Bidding ends May 27.
