The Art of Sharing Project

Have you ever wondered if you have a gift worth sharing? Do you paint, write, sing?

Why do some have so much while others have nothing? I have a friend who taught me a wonderful lesson - We should not give to others who have nothing - we should share. It is more respectful.

With this in mind, I am using my gift - painting. In December 2009, I will host an exhibit/sale of paintings based on photos that friends have taken over the years during their trips to Ethiopia, Sri Lanka, Kenya, Bangladesh and more.

A percentage of any sales will be donated to PWRDF - The Anglican Primates World Relief and Development Fund - More on PWRDF later.

As I complete each painting, I will post them here, with the picture's background.


Silence is Not an Answer

Silence is Not an Answer
My first painting for PWRDF was Silence is Not An Answer. This was based on a photo taken by Mo. Marian Jefferies in Ethiopia ten years ago. The photo was shot two days before the war broke out.

Other completed paintings for show (One more to finish tommorrow)

This is a painting of Rina and there is a heart-wrenching story of how she lost her daughter in Cyclone Sidr.

This painting is called "Never Alone". The name reflects our efforts to provide food to starving people.

"Food for Work" is about how farmers would be paid in food - part of the aid program by Canadian Food Grains Bank.

This painting by Elizabeth Cook is simply called "Home". This was a refugee camp and if you can imagine having your families live in these camps for twenty-years or so - having children born under these conditions, not knowing any other lifestyle?

Still more to post later.
