Fundraiser - Red, Hot & Soul

My gallery in town had an unusual request for me. To paint a "globe"- like a fishbowl upside down - for the annual gala for the Zachary Scott Theater in Austin. The decorated globes, donated by businesses around town, will be centerpieces on the tables and auctioned during the event.

I decided to focus on Austin and art. The globe I painted to represent the Russell Collection is brightly painted in acrylics and features many landmark buildings as well as public art pieces seen around town. The museums are labeled and the gallery is featured with some people viewing art inside.
It was a challenge and a lot of fun. Very different for me. I hope its well received. And carefully handled! Should it be dropped... its all over!
