Matthew and Me Painting No. 6 by LolaLynn
The "Matthew and Me" Turtle paintings from LolaLynn have been created by my 5 year-old grandson and myself. We started painting shortly after the BP oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico, but turtle rehabilitation continues. Matthew paints the background using water color paper, water color paints, straws and paper towels. I add the turtles and the finishing touches. So far we have sold 11 paintings and donated 50% to turtle rescue.
Our shop has been contributing to the EFA charity of the month and other animals causes promoted by members of our team since 2007. We sold last month's challenge entry and 50% was donated to the Audubon Nature Institute. A stash of jewelry has just been donated to Courageous Cats of Long Island for their summer fund raiser.
