Nepal Fundraiser Raffle – Winner Announced

Following on from the  aftermath of the powerful earthquake in Nepal, I wanted to find some way that I could help this horrible situation, I couldn’t bear to think about the devastation that this earthquake had left behind and I just wanted to do something, anything!

It was not long ago since I had visited this great country – I got to know and love the people – I wept for their poverty and I rejoiced in their good nature, their sensitivity, their gentile ways and sense of hope. 

I decided that I would create a painting of Nyatapola Temple, one of the few buildings that remained intact, I would raffle it and this would help to fundraise for this worthy cause.

My thought process was that if I painted the temple – this would be representative of the past.  Then two holy men approach from the cracked and broken earth mantle indicating the slowly moving rocky plates that shake the earth surface.

I exhibited my artwork at the People’s Art Open Air exhibition, Dublin last weekend where the painting of Nyatapola Temple, Bhaktapur was on display.  Friends, family, fellow artists and the public contributed and pledged funds for this worthy cause and were included in the raffle.

We have raised in excess of €300 which will be passed on to GOAL  to continue their important work in Nepal.  

I am happy to announce that the winner of the painting  is:

            Josephine Mooney, Dublin

Congratulations Josephine.
