Materials: acrylic paint and collage on wrapped canvas.
Status: This painting is on auction at Eagle View Elementary School. Bids close on October 7th.
Notes: Our friend, Alvin, is one of the riders in this years Tour de Rock (Cops for Cancer). He is biking 1000 kilometres to raise money for pediatric cancer research and Camp Goodtimes. Watching Alvin train for months - riding up Mount Washington, dyeing his hair pink, then shaving it off at a school assembly - and seeing the enormous commitment and support of his wife and family has really opened my eyes to the depth and breadth of this endeavour.
Our school has a goal of raising $5000 by October 7th - the last day of the ride. Our two oldest boys, Kieran and Liam, shaved their heads to show support for Alvin and the Tour de Rock team. I am so proud of them!
