Vermont Flood Relief Art Sale

Hurricane Irene tracked directly over my home state of Vermont on Sunday, August 28th. After twelve hours of torrential rains, waters poured down our mountains and rivers rose quickly, jumping their banks and inundating homes, businesses, and farmlands. Over 300 roads and bridges were damaged, including all of the highways that span the southern part of the state from east to west. Vermonters are working hard to recover, but they will need some help to rebuild.

I'm happy to be able to offer all proceeds from the sale of over 25 original hand-painted photographs to aid the relief effort here in Vermont. These images were created for my blog
"Let Me Show You Vermont", a project that's taking me on a sketchbook tour of all 251 Vermont towns. Unfortunately, many of these places were damaged by Hurricane Irene. Your purchase of one of the pieces in this series will be a generous donation to Vermont's recovery. And then come up and visit this wonderful state!
