For a cause...

I was asked if I'd like to do some mess making for the Shelter Valley Folk Festival "The Art Project". Participants are given a 5x7 canvas board to create works of art that are then auctioned to raise money. The proceeds go toward community programs including artists in the school. How could I possibly say "no"?

After much struggle with several types of glue... here's my contribution:

The theme this year was "community" so I figured I'd best make a wee village on top of that canvas ;)

Fingers crossed it brings them a few buck-a-roos ;)

Here's some additional info swiped from the site: Shelter Valley's "The Art Project" opens its doors from 6:30pm on Sunday November 25th for one night only, ending the evening with a Silent Auction. The event will take place at the Park Theatre & Performing Arts Centre at 60 King Street East in downtown Cobourg (across from Victoria Park).
