I know many of you are as concerned as I am with the destruction caused by Hurricane Sandy. You probably have friends who were impacted, as I have. I was pleased when David and Carol Marine put up an auction to collect funds for hurricane relief, just like the very successful auction that they hosted for the tsunami in Japan. And I was remiss in not posting when I put my first painting in the auction, almost two weeks ago. What has surprised me is that only a fraction of the money has been raised in this auction for Sandy relief as was for the tsunami. After looking through hundreds of photos sent to me by a friend in coastal Connecticut, I know that we are far from being done, in helping out the communities that were devastated by this storm. So I've put in a couple of more paintings (the sunflowers), with the hope that they will attract more bidding. My first contribution came from my heart, since it is a painting of one of the harbors hard hit by the storm. The auction on that painting ends in two days. If you are interested at all, please go and take a look. And thank you.

I've also put these images on my facebook page (this is new for me!) in the hopes of getting some interest there. And thanks to all of you who also have paintings in the dailypaintworks auction. Here's to its success.
