Bless this house,Â Oh Lord we Pray, make it safe for night and day…. simple words of faith for the many who don’t have a warm and secure home to sleep tonight. May they be home soon. Meanwhile we pray they are provided with the essentials needed to live in peace and find blessings in unexpected places. Amen.
In response to the devastation brought by Hurricane Irma, the members of Studio 1482 have created an art-for-donation fundraiser to aid in the rebuilding of the areaâ€™s hit by the storm. Florida is like a second home to Studio 1482, and several members have roots in the Caribbean, with family members directly affected. All this week, you can receive a print or original artwork from a Studio 1482 member by donating to one of the charities throughÂ the PayPal relief effortsÂ (See below for details.)
I did the piece above in collage, watercolor and digital media on Arches watercolor paper and decided to title it “In Prayer”. It is times like these when we realize there is nothing more important than to be there for our family and friends.
To participate in the fundraiser, send a $50 donation to one of the charities listed through PayPal, and then email your receipt to info(at)studio1482.com with your choice of artwork. You will then receive a 13â€³ x 19â€³ archival print from a limited edition of fiveÂ (while supplies last.) Â Donate $1482.00 to receive the original work!
Check out One Drawing A Day all week to see what art you might like to own, in print form or original. Thank you in advance for helping us help the people of the Caribbean to rebuild home.Â Sincerely,Â Michele Bedigian
