April brought us the annual Community Warehouse gala fundraiser, this year held at the Left Bank Annex in Portland. The collection of handmade, hand painted or otherwise creatively decorated furniture was provided by local artists, and eventually bid onby the happy diners. After the painting and before the lucky auction-winners took their tables and chairs home, we all ate yummy food, toasted with delicious drinks, mingled with fellow artists and philanthropists, met some lovely recipients of the Community Warehouse services, and enjoyed the live auction hosted by local TV anchorman, KPTV’s Pete Ferryman.
And here is the trompe l’ oeil table I painted and donated to this valuable cause. Portland has an important partner in improving the lives of so many citizens – check them out, and consider donating your used but still usable household items, or shopping in one of their Estate Stores. I love the Community Warehouse!
