Spent the afternoon planning arrangements for a painting I’ll be working on the next few weeks, which will feature endangered flora of BC: Sand Verbena, Golden Paintbrush, Haller’s Apple Moss, Cliff Paintbrush, and Bent Spike Rush.
The final painting will be auctioned off on November 23rd at the Promise GALA, benefiting a new youth centre in our DTES called Urban Promise.
The night will include live entertainment by the talented DJ Barron S, the soulful DJ Omar Khan, a silent auction, photobooth and photostation by Butter Studios, Sarah Draws A Crowd caricature, drinks and nibbles. Reporter/anchor Lien Yeung from CBC News will be the evening’s MC. The Pacific Northwest is so lush and robust that we can easily overlook our vulerable flora.
The Canadian Species at Risk Act (SARA) aims to prevent Canadian wildlife from disappearing, to recover endangered, threatened species as a result of human activity. Learn more: https://www2.gov.bc.ca/gov/content/environment/plants-animals-ecosystems/species-ecosystems-at-risk
