A couple of days ago I handed in my paintings for the annual auction held by Amnesty International in my home town. This tradition has become established over the past 40 years. I have been contributing some of my works for the past three.
This year I have handed in the two paintings on the left. They show local scenes. The one I have called “collage” depicts several local sights such as the football stadium, the planetarium, the mining museum, the theatre, and the university. The water represents the river and the area´s reservoir.
My paintings will be auctioned off together with the works of many other artists.
The auction will help both Amnesty International and the participating artists. Amnesty will be able to use the fund-raising exercise to aid people around the world and artists will get the opportunity to present their works to a wide audience during the auction.
