Burlington Artscape “A Leaf for Life”

Happy to donate my “Leaf For Life” painted aluminum leaf, “Summer Fun at Spencer Smith Park” for the fundraising initiative in support of Joseph Brant Hospital.

Art will be sold to businesses and residents in Burlington for $750, with all proceeds going directly to Joseph Brant Hospital.

There will be a public display of the work of the 50 chosen artists on August 8, 15, 22 on the property of Grace United Church, 2111 Walkers Line, Burlington at 10 to 4pm..

My painting “Summer Fun at Spencer Smith Park” portrays the fun that children and their parents were having on a hot summer day.  Spencer Smith Park’s waterfront playground is a welcome respite, especially after a year of the restrictions of Covid.  The children are having fun: playing and socializing outdoors, enjoying the playground equipment, riding their bikes and scooters and meeting new people, including those who are disabled.  The two Moms enjoy the park as a safe outing for their young children as well as a way for much needed conversation.
