For Some Greater Good

I currently have two paintings I donated and you can bid on in the Coalition on Homelessness San Francisco (COHSF) - ArtAuction21 at and This auction is ongoing until noon on September 23, 2021, at which point the highest bidder will win the art. Besides my two paintings there are numerous other artworks in this auction. Do take a look at what is being offered to benefit COHSF in its work to help the homeless and homelessness, which has become a crisis here in the Bay Area. With the current renter protections expiring on September 30, this issue may become even worse. So, if you want to give to a worthy cause, this is definitely one. Also, you will likely not see better prices for art you may want, so, I invite you to participate and bid on art you would like to have. Thank you to those of you who will take on this invitation! You will need to register to bid, but this is an easy process with directions on the site.

The two paintings I donated are titled May Peace Prevail and May We Choose Love. Both are valued at $350 each and the current bids, as I am writing this blog on Saturday, 9/18 around 3 PM (PST), are at $105 and $50. These paintings are symbolic of what we can do in order to create a better world for all. The whole world could use a healing and much more love and compassion in action. The whole world would also benefit from people thinking in terms of wholeness and oneness and harmony. It truly is my hope that sanity and love and peace will prevail and that we will overcome these dark times and make this world a better place for all.

I am including the images of the two paintings I donated to the COHSF auction here. You have until September 23, 12 noon (PST) to bid on these and all other works in this auction. Click on the direct links to my works above (item/24 and item/25) to get connected. Both of these acrylic paintings on canvas are 10 by 8 inches in size and do not need to be framed to be displayed. Here is also the link to the auction itself:

On behalf of COHSF I thank you for your generous consideration! May love and peace in the world prevail.
