Bid on this painting to donate to the NWF!

Venice LA
oil on canvas
6 x 8 inches

This is the painting that I did in response to the Gulf oil spill, and The Spirit of the Gulf challenge. It is also #44 in my 100 painting project. I have listed this painting on Ebay with 100% of the proceeds from the sale going to the National Wildlife Federation. This painting is a view of the marshlands in Venice, Louisiana, an area affected by the oil spill. I found this scene using Google Street View.

Even though some time has past and we tend to forget rather quickly when the news cycles on to the next big event, there is still clean up going on in the Gulf from the devastating effects of the BP oil spill. Wildlife in that area will probably be impacted by the oil spill for a long time. I admire the efforts of organizations such as the National Wildlife Federation to help care for our natural environments and its inhabitants as well as this organization's educational efforts, especially their publications for children. So if you can help me with this donation, head on over to it's listing on Ebay.
