This painting will be sold in a live auction at The Art-Full Affair on Saturday, May 23, sponsored by the Arts Commission of Danville and Boyle County.  This event raises funds for the McKune Scholarships, which make it possible for kids in our county to study the arts. Tom McKune believed that everyone deserved a great education, and that the creativity of kids should be nurtured by good instruction.  I was lucky to know him as a friend, and as a colleague at Centre College. Tom loved helping others. It is an honor to give this work in support of the scholarships named for him.

The work has been beautifully framed, also as a gift for the auction, by Maple Tree Gallery.  It is always a pleasure to work with my friends there, especially when we are contributing to a good cause.
