About Our Auction

The 18 Day Painting Challenge ran from January 5th to 22nd. Each morning, I would wake up and pull a prompt from a hat and create a painting inspired by it. A total of 6 paintings were purchased outright. The remaining 12 are available to purchase as part of this online auction.
All proceeds from the sale of these items will support a house build in Cambodia for a family in need with the charity Bracelets 4 Buildings. I have added a few extra items...just for fun.


About Birdsong Studios

Russell Thomas began creating wild colour portraits in Birdsong Studio (Fort McMurray) in 2014. His late career dive into painting has combined his passion for portraiture with his interest in giving back. Live paintings, painting donations and the sale of prints have helped multiple charities. In recent years, families in rural Cambodia moved into new homes, funded by the sale of paintings and prints through a charity called Bracelets For Buildings.

In addition to doing commissions for clients from across Canada and the U.S., Russell enjoys following his creative instincts and producing work that is made available through his Russell Thomas Art Facebook page and his Instagram account (@russellthomasart).

Heather Thomas is co-owner of Birdsong Studios. She has been exploring abstract art over the past few years and has found a unique "voice" using a broad range of materials and methods. She has become an artist in her own right and works in the studio alongside Russell almost every day. You follow her Instagram account @heatherthomasart.
