Art For a Good Cause.

The piece of art shown here was made by me over 20 odd years ago, it even got framed and hung on the wall.

Cat drawing

Sometime later it was put behind a cupboard or a book case and stored and moved house, and stored again whilst I moved onward with practicing and evolving my craft.

Today all those years later it has surfaced for me to reflect upon and I will allow it to accompany my post here as the one I wish to post is a secret for the next 9 days!

The reason for these strange goings on is that Longfield Hospice, at Burleigh nr Stroud in Gloucestershire Uk has nearly 100 pieces of work submitted for a secret auction to raise money for this fabulous charity providing therapeutic and end of life care for those in need.   You can find Longfield here  with lots of information and a link on the page for the auction currently on ebay.

People who receive full time care or attend the drop-in centre do so without charge as the charity raises funds to provide fantastic support in a fabulous location perfect for holistic care.

Get onto ebay click on “see all items” and take a look at what is on offer…artists local to Gloucestershire and celebrities as well have submitted original artwork for you to bid on.  The artist’s name is on the back to be disclosed upon purchase…it could a piece of work by Laurence Llewelyn-Bowen or even Keren Woodward from Bananarama….. or even little ol’ me.
