Watercolour Painting for the 'Trails for Creston Valley Society'

Recently the Creston Trail Society was fund raising to purchase a riverside property for a park. In the initial stages of fund raising, when I offered my artistic services, the Society members asked me to create a painting that could be used as a poster to track the fund raising efforts. They had a few specific things they wanted which I incorporated. The right side was left quite bare to accommodate the fundraising numbers that were to be added. The painting was copied and laminated which worked very well for adding on slips of paper with amounts of the goal to be reached and the fund raising efforts to date. 

The painting was also used on the cover of the 'I love Creston' magazine!

The poster on the table of one of the fund raisers.


The painting continued to be used for additional posters even after the property was purchased. The graphic designer did a great job in adding the texted to the scanned painting.


Another great poster.


The painting was also used for 75 Thank You cards.


And the local bakery made a cake for a celebration at the purchased property. What a great project to be involved in. Look here for more information Trails for Creston Valley Society

This artwork has been an outstanding contribution to the Trails Society fundraising efforts, Eileen, and you should be justifiably proud of what you've helped accomplish for them. I know it has been truly valued, and as you've noted, used in a host of ways to raise visibility of the project in the community. Congratulations on fulfilling their needs in such a beautifully artistic way. You ROCK, my friend!!
