instead of my usual monday post I have a special post for today.
Australia is being wracked by bushfires, Victoria has had the worst fires in recorded history with (at time of writing) 128 confirmed dead and over 500 homes lost. the projected death toll is 230 at this stage. whole towns are gone. families are devastated, homeless, grieving.
fires were already raging when Victoria had it’s hottest day in history on Saturday with a recorded top of 46.4 (115.5 f). there have been uncountable fires, some getting uncomfortably close to home and loved ones. the call has gone out for anyone who can do anything, volunteer, donate, give blood, give housing, whatever you can. Liam is giving blood. I am unable to donate blood or help physically in any way due to my disabilities. we have clothes bagged and ready to donate but I would like to do more.
I am selling these paintings. 100% of the proceeds will go to bushfire relief in Victoria. it’s all I can do to help so please – whether you live in Australia or another part of the world you can own a work of art and know that you have made a difference.
