Central Florida painting #Orlando

I finished this 5 piece painting today.  Each piece was done on a 16×20″ stretched canvas.  What are we looking at here?  It’s Central Florida!  My home sweet home.  To the west we have Cinderella’s castle off in the distance with a road that leads to the city of Orlando.  The road continues passing by a home.  This home is the Central Florida Children’s home and the reason I painted the piece as this will be given to them this week.  Looking east you can see NASA’s Vehicle Assembly Building with a rocket in flight.  You can’t paint a pan of Florida without including a breezy beach!

Several people asked for a print version, so I’ve made one available over at Fine Art America.  They are not individual prints.  It’s one print with all the images on one sheet just like the image shown above.  It’s available from a small 16″ wide to a huge 84″ wide with many in-between sizes.  Below are some up close shots of the actual paintings.

“Dear Caylee” Project – Art for Charity

This post is about taking the negative and turning it into a positive.  A little back story as to why I’ve chosen to do this charity project….

Re: Caylee Anthony
Because I live just a couple of miles from the Anthony home, I’ve watched this story unfold from the very beginning.  I even wanted to go out and help in the search, but having two toddlers at home and being sick with the joys of the first trimester at the time kept me from being able to do so.  From the frantic George Anthony automated local phone calls “Help us find out granddaughter”, to seeing the large trailer drive around town with Caylee’s picture and info, to the day in December when they found Caylee’s remains, to the day the verdict was rendered – the whole ordeal has left me deeply saddened and frustrated.  Is there any “good” that can come from any of this?  Well for starters we now have Caylee’s Law, and I believe we can do other things for kids in the name of this little girl who didn’t get to see her 3rd birthday.

So on to something good!  I’ve decided to do a colored sketch drawing of a little angel in her favorite color (lavender) dress.  It is currently being made into prints the size of artist trading cards (ACEO’s) that measure 2.5″ x 3.5″.  100% of the proceeds from each card sold will be donated to the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children through eBay’s Giving Works program on Caylee Anthony’s behalf.  I’m still working on a few logistical things, but they will be sold for $10 each.  Each card will be numbered on the back  (probably a limited edition of 100). Each card will have the title “Dear Caylee” along with a short note to her.  I will continue to offer these for the rest of 2011.

So while I wait on the prints, gathering some shipping supplies, and cases for the cards…stay tuned for the eBay listing to start.  Or you can receive news on this project by subscribing to this blog, or catching updates over on my facebook page.  I should have everything up and running in one week.
