About Our Auction

Over the last month, I have been doing the 19 Day Painting Challenge in support of Bracelets For Buildings, a charity that builds home for the poorest of the poor in rural Cambodia. A number of paintings have sold at their BUY NOW price prior to the auction. All the others are being made available, with a starting bid amount deeply discounted to give everyone a chance to win an original painting. We also have a number of gallery canvas prints that are included in this auction.

GST will be added to the final sale price.

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.

Birdsong Studio is now located in High River, Alberta.
