Running With Brushes
A Care for Casualties fund raising project
I once met a fellow artist called Vandy Massey very briefly a few years ago at Patchings Art Festival in Nottingham and have followed her paintings and travels on Facebook ever since. Recently I came across a charity she has started called ‘Running with Brushes’ which supports the Care for Casualties Appeal, ring-fenced within The Rifles Regimental Trust and specifically to care for those regimental families affected by the conflict in Iraq and Afghanistan. You can read all about it here Having personal family connections Vandy has pledged to paint and sell 1000 small original watercolour paintings and has since enlisted many artists from around the world to help her. So far she has raised over £6000. I have sent her three of my paintings to help towards her goal of £10000.
