Supporting Worthy Causes

I am an advocate of making good change happen. In this pursuit, supporting those who are homeless is one of the causes I choose to support. I do this by donating my art to auctions that benefit the homeless. This year the COHSF ArtAuction22 in person event is happening on Thursday, September 8, at 5:30 until 10 PM at the SOMArts Gallery located at 934 Brannan Street in San Francisco. You can buy tickets to this event online as well as bid online for free from the comfort of your own home starting on September 1 at 12 noon PDT and ending on September 8 at 9 PM. Take a look at all the art for sale in this auction in this preview:

My two paintings are listed as #117 and #118. These are titled May You Always Find Your Way and May You Realize Your Dreams. Both are acrylic on canvas, ready to hang and do not need to be framed. These paintings are valued at $400 and the bidding starts at $120. There are many wonderful artworks in this auction and I hope you will participate and put in your bids and win some great art that will enhance your life and you will love!

If you are interested in purchasing these artworks by me printed-on-demand, (POD), on a variety of products ranging from customizable wall art and greeting cards to home decor and personal items, you can do so at FAA/Pixels via these links: and In my Spreading Goodwill Gallery you will also find more paintings, both sold and unsold: Let me know if you are interested in buying any of the original works that are still available and not offered in the ArtAuction22 this year. All printed product orders are handled by FAA/Pixels and all of these have a 30 day return policy.

I thank you for supporting all worthy causes in this world. Here are pictures of the two paintings in ArtAuction22 and the statements I have made about them:

May You Always Find Your Way by Helena Tiainen:

"Life can present us with many challenges, which can be viewed as opportunities to grow or as obstacles. How we view anything depends on our own attitudes and here is where we always have a choice. We can choose to believe that our attitudes are justified, no matter how bad they make us feel or we can realize that it is really best to look for the light in any situation. Why? Because this will make us feel better and feeling better will enable us to make choices that can lead to further happiness. There is really nothing more to it. So, any time you find yourself overwhelmed by your circumstances, remember to ask yourself what is possible beyond despair. May You Always Find Your Way."

May You Realize Your Dreams by Helena Tiainen:

"It takes vision and persistence to realize a dream in this world. May you have what it takes to make this world a better place."

I have donated two paintings to this auction and you will never get a better chance to obtain these at a low price than in an auction. The starting bid for each of my two paintings is $120 and they are both valued at $400! I hope some of you will find art you want for yourself or for gifting in this auction! Thank you for your support, consideration and generosity.
