Painting Auction to Benefit the Japanese People

I wanted to share a link with my blogging friends.  Below is a link to over three hundred original artworks by very talented artists.  They are auctioning their artwork for the benefit of those who are suffering after the tragedy in Japan.  I will place one for auction after this weekend of painting.  This is a great opportunity to do some good and to get amazing art as the bonus.

Peggy Kroll Roberts Workshop

Peggy is very well known as an artist and a teacher.  She is coming to North Carolina (Charlotte) in May and there is very limited space for her classes.  I am pleased to be able to take the time to go to this wonderful class and learn more about value, hue, composition and simplification.

I have noticed that all the paintings that I am drawn to are always simple but well thought out.  Here is a link to Peggy's work.  Her husband is also a fabulous artist as well.
