This painting was auctioned off on Saturday night (February 22, 2014) to benefit the American Heart Association’s 2014 Heart Ball. The Heart Ball is one of the premier American Heart Association fundraising events both locally and across the nation.
I spent just about every day off, and over 60 hours of the last two months to complete this painting of Fayetteville Street in downtown Raleigh. The successful bidder walked away with my painting, and the American Heart Association received all proceeds of the sale ($750).
Currently, I am working on a series of paintings that focus on local urban landscapes throughout the Raleigh/Durham area. A unique element of this series of paintings is that I intend to use the grain of the homemade wooden panels I paint upon to accent my work (the sky beyond the buildings was untouched and is represented by the grain of the wood).
