The Daily Paintworks Challenge this week is dedicated to helping the people of Japan. DPW has asked that artists submit a work with the theme of "Home." All work is on the auction block with 100% of the proceeds of each auction going to a charity or non-profit presently helping Japan. Many wonderful paintings have been submitted.
I put up Almost Home originally posted here on this blog. I painted it on an icy twilight looking at the view from my studio window. As I worked, I thought of the comfort and security that's bound up in our idea of home.
I nurture the hope that all those displaced by the tragedy that has engulfed Japan can in time find that comfort and security once more.
Almost Home is a 14x11 oil with a starting bid of $95.00. Visit and see all the entries.
