I'm was out supporting my local Salvation Army today, by manning a Red Shield Appeal collection point at a local shopping centre in the city of Bayswater, WA.
While there, I am taking the opportunity to do some art! It is a great conversation starter – hence this painting.
Many generous people supported the Salvos here, and anyone is welcome to join them by donating online at my fundraising page.
Thank you for supporting The Salvation Army!
