the cnib project
The paintings above are the works that I have completed so far.Â I know that there are many more people in this country that need thisÂ opportunity. Since there are over 50 locations across Canada, It would take me over 20 years to install a painting in each location at my current pace and yet I am unwavering in my plan to do so.Â
However there is a way to speed up this process and allow me to create more paintings each year.Â
The questionÂ is: How will this beÂ achieved?
One painting at a time and with your help of course!
With extraÂ supplies I will have the ability to create more paintings each year than my budget currently allow
how you might help?
Materials for large scale paintings with this amount of texture are a costly thing. My inventory of canvas and pigments needs replenishing in order to create the next painting.
I understand there are manyÂ who feel uncomfortable donating money.Â There are two ways to help with this project, for every painting I sell 50% of the proceeds will go towards the cost of creating a CNIB donated painting.
Or you could purchase a supply and send it to Kate Ramos 35Â MargaretÂ St. Angus, ON. L0M 1B0
Each supply donated will only be used onÂ paintings for the blind. Also your name will go on the list of benefactors unless you prefer to remain anonymous. Below is a list of supplies to choose from.
