I was commissioned by Feeding Tampa Bay to create a painting for the Empty Bowls Event where three other artists and I painted live and had our paintings auctioned off. We were able to raise $20,000 for Feeding Tampa Bay. I was grateful to have been invited and amongst amazing company.
Feeding Tampa Bay, part of the national Feeding America network, focuses on providing food to nearly 1 million food-insecure families in the 10-county area of West Central Florida.
Thank you to FeedingTampa Bay, Tyler the Curator, Chappell Roberts, Epicurean Hotel, PedroH Art, Steve Halay, and Nicholas Lucius.
This 4' in diameter painting was auctioned off to an amazing couple, for $5,000 and was donated back to Feeding Tampa Bay so they can hang it at their new facility.
