August was a bumper month

For a second month out, August was amazing, awesome and utterly fantastic.

I have been overwhelmed with the generosity of the artists who have contacted me and sent paintings for the project. We’ve now had paintings contributed by 8 other artists with more in the pipeline. This project seemed like an enormously high mountain to climb when I started.  We’re fast approaching the foothills:

August in Numbers:

There are currently 44 paintings to choose from on the site with more being posted up daily. They can be viewed by artist, by subject and even by colour (using the tags on the right hand side).  We’re painting like crazy for Christmas – but if you want to grab one early, there’s plenty of choice.

Fresh Flowers 2 (OQA2)

We’ve had a wonderful weekend with artist friend Olivia Quintin visiting from Vannes in France who painted up a storm for RWB while she was here. This bouquet of fresh flowers is one of her beauties. It will be going on sale in the next 24 hours.
