In addition to the pet charities, I also help other worthy groups, like the American Heart Association. When a dear friend of mine there asked for an art piece to auction for their fundraiser, I was glad to oblige. This is “Embolus,” which is the name of a clot that breaks free and causes a stroke. My vision was the clot impacting everything in life, like a meteor strike. So this painting is my attempt to visualize that, both in movement and symbolism. I sincerely hope it generates a large income for a great cause. Check out the American Heart Association for more information on the event.
