Chris Daniels and the Kings painting raises nearly $3500 for the LLS

About a month ago I had the fortune of performing/painting live alongside Colorado musician and Leukemia survivor, Chris Daniels. He hosted a show with his band members at the Hard Rock Cafe in Denver as a benefit for the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society / Rocky Mountain Chapter. What a brilliant evening of music and dancing and ART!

I chose the subject matter of Chris's current logo, a red truck with a giant guitar in the back, for the live painting. Following the show, the painting was auctioned off for nearly $3500! About 2 dozen attendees of the event made donations from $10-$500 to buy the painting in honor of the LLS and Chris. The Hard Rock Cafe has graciously agreed to host the painting to continue to promote awareness about the LLS.  We are all looking forward to seeing where the RED TRUCK will hang prominently in one of the restaurant's many locations around the planet. If you see it - let us know!
