I support Kidlit4JapanI am delighted to be contributing this small painting to the Kidlit4Japan online auction to raise funds for UNICEF and Save the Children’s disaster relief in Japan. I chose this little piece (which is not published anywhere) because it features a girl riding an origami (folded paper) crane, and I thought it would be a nice thing to contribute.

The painting is just under 7 by 10 inches (that’s 250mm by 175 mm roughly) and it’s painted in acrylics on watercolor paper with touches of gold wax gilt on its border. It is mounted/matted in sturdy acid-free ivory board which takes its overall dimensions to just under 18 by 15 inches (450mm by 370 mm). I’ll cover shipping costs to the top bidder’s location.

UPDATE (April 14): There was a really nice response to this painting in the auction and I’m pleased to say I packed it up today to fly off to its new home. Its new owner is very excited to have it which makes me really happy!
