Painting from Photographs>>

Painting at Fund Raisers is a way to get guests talking and ready to bid on the painting when the time comes.  If the winner of the auction isn't already in the painting, I can soon add them.This Fund Raiser was The March of Dimes Signature Chefs Auction held at the Please Touch Museum in the newly rennovated Memorial Hall in Fairmount Park Philadelphia.   The Museum has a working carousel - which is actually in another hall, and a giant version of the Statue of Liberty's Hand and Torch - made out of LEGOs !! and also in another hall ... so I thought it would be fun to make them a part of the Chef's event.
