Rocks in Moonlight

Kinda exciting to have one's painting show up in the Montreal paper, Le Devoir
The article is in French and talks about the project TimeRaiser who purchased the painting from myself and 19 other Montreal artists.
The paintings are then auctioned off for volunteer hours, not money. I think this is such a fantastic project in that it promotes art and artists while using time instead of money in exchange for the artwork.
So often artists are asked to donate their works to projects like these and so often we do, willingly but how refreshing that TimeRaiser has recognized that artists actually need to be paid money so that
they can continue on with their work. 
Bravo to TimeRaiser for an excellent concept all round!
