Art of Caring, Baptist Foundation, donated "Release" which sold for $1400

Painted a large collection box for Resurrection Catholic Church to use in food drives, clothing drives, etc.

I gave the Phoenix Club permission to use a photo of a painting that I created at Resurrection. About 60% of every purchase goes directly to the Boys and Girls Club of Memphis and is therefore tax-deductable. If you want to order some, use this link below.
