Sprinkles of Joy

These 3 small paintings were finished and shipped to Ireland the end of January for the INCOGNITO: ART INITIATIVE fund raiser for the Jack and Jill Children's Foundation.

This was my first time painting something this small but it was fun. I was not able to use my normal texture techniques since the paintings were on 4x6 cards supplied by the exhibition administrator, but I played with it and enjoyed finding a new way to express myself.

The Art Initiative will consist of 1500 postcard-size works of art which will be exhibited at the Solomon Gallery in Dublin, Ireland in April 2017 (following a public viewing online). Every single euro from the sale of these works will go to The Jack & Jill Children’s Foundation to help sick children – not to the administration of the charity, but directly to nursing-care of children with brain damage in every county across Ireland.

It is hoped that this visual arts initiative will raise €75,000 for Jack & Jill, which will be used to fund home nursing-care for children with severe development delay as a result of brain damage, children who may never paint a picture themselves, but precious children who do better at home, where they are well cared for by their parents with critical support from Jack & Jill nurses. .
