Art World Project for Children in Need

Art World Project is a collective effort inviting artists from all nations to contribute an artwork or two to a great cause: earning money for three major children’s charities. Seven huge panels (to represent the continents) will exhibit over 50,000 works of art from all over the world!You can submit either a JPG alone or the digital file AND the original work to be included in the fundraising. As I understand it, funds for the charities will come from the small entry fee and subsequent sales of original art and reproductions. The site has all the details, including the identities of the founders, the name of the trustee, the timeline, the charities that will receive the funding, etc. This is a wonderful opportunity to make a contribution to a great cause and be part of a global statement in support of needy children. Here’s the link: http://www.artworldproject.com

This painting, which I call "Flower Songs," is the work I chose to submit to the project. I'm donating print rights for this image. I chose it because I thought the bold forms and bright colors would appeal to children. Not that children who are hungry or homeless will care very much about looking at art....

Exquisite, vibrant colours and an amazing free-flowing movement in your painting. It will appeal to children as well as adults. Each year I donate a painting to Christian Aid, and run off cards of some of my paintings for their funds.
