About Our Auction

Each year I do a multi-day painting challenge to raise money to build a house for a poor family in rural Cambodia. The number of days coincides with the year. Hence, the 20 Day Painting Challenge in 2020.

I wake up every morning for 20 days in a row and pull a prompt (provided by fans and friends) and paint something inspired by that prompt. Each painting will be sold with net proceeds being donated to Bracelets For Buildings / Carpenters For Cambodia.

Each painting will get posted in this auction upon completion with the starting bid price of $50, no matter the size. A BUY NOW option will be available based on the regular price of an original painting in that size. The BUY NOW option will include FREE SHIPPING to anywhere in Canada or the USA.

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.
