Ink and Gouache on Strathmore Cold Press Watercolor Paper
Meg and Alice Hunt decided that they wanted to do something for those affected by the horrendous earthquakes and tsunamis that devastated Japan on March 11, 2011. They decided to hold an art auction, “Art for Japan.” They asked for artists to donate their work and I knew instantly that I wanted to donate. This is my piece along with a few detail shots. It depicts Kinkaku-ji, the Gold Pavillion, a Zen Buddhist temple in Kyoto. I wanted to pay tribute to the calm, serene, classic beauty of Japan.
The actual auction will be starting sometime this month. All funds raised through the auction will be donated to AmeriCares and tagged for Japan relief. AmeriCares, a nonpartisan and nondenominational organization that uses 99% of its revenue on its charitable programs. Please be sure to keep checking back on the “Art for Japan” blog so you can bid on some of the gorgeous artwork that has been donated and contribute to such an important cause.
