June 2006

One of my paintings titled "Circles of Hope" was auctioned as part of a fund raiser called The Children’s Ride, an event that benefits The Children’s Hospital. I worked with some celebrities and patients of the hospital on this painting. The painting was a series of 12 circles, and each participant painted their own circle. Later, I took the painting to my studio and added several layers of paint to complete it. Some of the celebrities were: Paul Yaffe (a custom motorcycle builder), Edgar Martinez (Past Seattle Mariner), and Apolo Ono (Olympic gold medal skater). Also painting was Spike from KZOK, who was MC for the event. It was a blast to attend the event. I was completely blown away when the painting sold for $11,000! I’m so grateful for the generosity. All of the money donated that night goes to a fund to help treat children that can’t afford healthcare.
