Help for Heroes Painting Auctioned - and Another Commision

Done for free and auctioned for the Help for heroes charity

This painting I did as a freebie for the Help for heroes charity raised £150 for them at a non art  / general auction last night. Its a worthy charity and I had no problem at all doing this painting for them as a freebie.

While I may be a pacifist (mostly) I see it as vital that people who have literally risked life and limb for the safety of others are looked after correctly when they can no longer do that job, and not just left to fend for themselves on the streets or worse.  So I had no problem doing this painting when I was asked.

Property of the British army

This one above came as a direct result of the help for heroes painting and was a commission.  Its now in the possession of a British Army regiment and I was given permission to finally show it recently (after doing it some weeks back. )  Thus showing that karma exists, and what goes around does indeed come around.

I've got 3 other commissions done and just waiting on permissions to be able to show at some point.
