Jessica Sporn is hosting an art auction to raise money for Girl Rising, in support of global education for girls. This is obviously in reaction to 200+ girls that were taken in Nigeria. I am donating a 8x8 canvas to the action.
I have never 'sold' my work before but i really wanted to do this. (you can bid hear.)
I don't normally talk about my process ether but for this one I will make an exception.
I started by writing as many girls names I could think of, its only by a accent of birth that this is not your daughter (or mine) I wanted the names to represent every girl, any girl!
Then I prettied it up to mark to represent distracting are self so I don't notice the horrible things that happen in the world.
Lastly I panted the woman making her eye's was really emotional for me. Can I really ignore there plight when she is looking right at me?
I will be posting on the day of the auction as well but i thought I would publish this video as well to get more eyes on the sight. More eyes more money raised in my view.
Please consider buying something(even if its not mine) or donating directly let some goodness come out of this dreadful thing that has happened.
