20% of the net sales from the purchase of specially selected original

Here is another example of the original sumi-e art offered.
I will join international artists from around the globe in an exhibition to raise funds for a Norwegian Woman's Crisis Center. I have donated the below sumi-e for the exhibition which has been organized by Swedish-American artist David Sandum. The Exhibition comprises of 226 hand-painted original artworks from 29 countries (including; India, China, Japan, Finland, Iceland, Netherlands, Germany, UK, US, Australia, Canada, Sudan, Ireland, Somalia, South Africa, Sweden, Norway, Hungary, Switzerland, France, Spain, Venezuela, Mexico and Italy).
The exhibition, only the second of its kind will be heavily promoted via the social media application twitter, using the hashtag #twitterartexhibit. Opened by the towns Mayor and covered by the national Norwegian Press, the show will raise much needed funds for the crisis center by the sale or auction of the artworks.
The Women's Crisis Center in Moss, is where abused women and children can get help. The center also provides a 24 hour phone-service, counseling, food and shelter. It has lost a lot of its funding over the past year and had staffing cut from 19 to 11. This is a very important cause, not only for the women in a crisis situation but also for their children.
