For the past 10 weeks

For the past 10 weeks, I have been taking night school classes in acrylic painting. I believe we should always learn and improve our skills. This is what I have been working on for the past 10 weeks.

I pushed colours in my Poppy painting; changed the lighting on Stonehenge from daylight to night and did an experiment using cloth as the canvas. I used clear gesso to prepare the cloth for painting. My source pictures are included.

Canadian Cancer Society Great Ride 'n' Stride:

Canadian Cancer Society Great Ride 'n' Stride:

I am participating in Great Ride 'n' Stride in Burlington (I'm doing the Stride part) to support the mission of the Canadian Cancer Society. I am participating in this walk in honour of my brother Mike. Mike lost his battle with cancer April 22/10. Mike was battling melanoma which has spread to his brain. In the past, Mike has walked for others, now we are walking for him. The walk here in Burlington is on Sunday May 1st.

Your support is appreciated. Simply click on the Support Chris button and complete the information requested.

The money raised from this event helps fund leading-edge cancer research that is improving cancer treatments, preventing cancer and saving lives; provide reliable and up-to-date information on cancer, risk reduction and treatment; offer vital community-based support services for people living with cancer and their families; and advocate for healthy public policies.

Please pledge me and help me reach my fundraising goal! Every pledge takes us one step further in the fight against cancer. Online pledging is secure and it saves the Canadian Cancer Society money by reducing administrative costs.
