"Wild Wild West Hollywood"!!!

"Turquoise and Orange", 8x10 inches, oil on linen

Upcoming Show:

I'd like to invite all of you in the area to an upcoming event I'll be showing my work at billed as "Wild Wild West Hollywood Art Show and Celebrity Auction"

This is a charity event to benefit the "Gerry Forbes CJAY 92 Kids Foundation". The evening will include special guest appearances by local professional athletes, film and tv stars including Amber Marshall and Graham Wardle of CBC's "Heartland", Chris Potter of "The Young and the Restless" and "Kung Fu The Legend Continues", to name just a few. My good friend, wildlife artist Glenn Olson , will be the Featured Artist.

The evening's festivities also include a live auction, as well as a silent auction, with mayoralty candidate Craig Burrows as the celebrity auctioneer.

My painting, "Turquoise and Orange" (above), framed, 8x10 inches, oil on linen, retail $850, will be part of the auction with 100% of the proceeds going to benefit the Kids Foundation.

In addition, I will be showing a number of paintings which will be for sale with a percentage of the sale going to the foundation.
