This is a SUPER SPECIAL one-off acetate original painting of a Sulphur-Crested Cockatoo with ALL proceeds going to Refuge UK, an incredible charity helping and supporting women and children in the UK who are victims of domestic abuse.
I created this painting doing a live paint-along with Kate Slater who was creating her own flock of birds to auction off for Refuge, continuing her long-standing and outstanding fundraising efforts for this very important charity.
The Refuge Cockatoo is painted in light-fast paints which will withstand being hung in a window but he would look equally at home framed up on the wall! The colour and brush strokes are generously applied and there are subtle metallic elements which catch the light beautifully through the eucalyptus.
Refuge reported a 700% increase in calls to their helpline in a single day during Covid19 Lockdown and the number of reported domestic abuse fatalities has more than doubled during this time. These are startling facts and the money raised from this sale will really make a difference.
Thank you for supporting and caring. x
