Heal the Bay Gala and Artwork

Holy Smokes!  I felt some serious love from Heal the Bay last week at their annual fundraiser gala, "Bring Back the Beach."  As 2013 Partner Artist, I donated the artwork to to be used for this years' event as well as the original painting to be be auctioned off along with some prints on Bamboo Plywood.  The artwork was EVERYWHERE!  Name badges, wall mural, signage, Giant LCD screen, Tribute Journals... Pretty cool. "Kelpafornia 2" is the second in a series of 3 paintings for our Heal the Bay Partner Artist campaign this year.  Read more about the partnership HERE.   Pretty happy with how the silent auction went, the paintings and prints raised several thousand dollars for Heal the Bay.  A massive thanks to all the folks at Heal the Bay for supporting my art!  Here's some pics...
