Sounds like a worthwhile cause.
Interesting work, especially "After the Storm", the way it's layered and layered, and them *wham* a big yellow blob is applied, almost obliterating what's underneath (but not quite). Powerful.

Stephanie: Thank you! I've been toying with images like this for a few months and these are the 3rd and 4th of this new body of work. I'm looking forward to seeing what happens when I increase the scale a bit.
