GLAAD OUTAuction 2007

Vine Ripe Tomatoes, 2006, oil on panel, 9 x 9 inches

This year I have been selected to participate in GLAAD’s upcoming annual art event – outAuction . I was very pleased to find out that I am one out of one hundred artists to participate in this event. I hope you will consider joining me on 10/21 for a night of cocktails and great art - all for a good cause. This year’s art includes pieces by Herb Ritts, Steven Klein and Ryan McGinness to name a few. Past celebrity participants include Tom Ford, Susie Essman, Patricia Fields, Eva LaRue and Junior Vasquez. In the next couple of days GLAAD will be releasing more fun updates. Last year’s event raised over $121,000, with over 500 people in attendance from the media, philanthropic and entertainment communities. To view this year’s event information, purchase tickets, join the Host Committee, please go to:

Very cool painting! You've really nailed the smooth texture of the skin and bowl. Way to go . .

thank you both for your comments. I was never sure how I felt about this painting, but some other people liked it and got positive feedback from it, so I decided to submit it to the auction. I guess the people at GLAAD like it as well.
