Match It For Pratchett

Our son O works for the Alzheimer's Research Trust and he is being kept very busy dealing with the donations coming in as a result of the publicity surrounding Terry Pratchett's wonderful donation of a million dollars to support the work of the trust. This is my only non-art related post in the blog but I hope that you will take a moment to read it.

"Match it for Pratchett" has grown up among the blogging community to try to match the donation with a further million dollars.

You can make a donation directly here.

My grandmother and J's father both suffered from Dementia and fighting the disease is a cause close to our hearts.

I am donating 100% of the proceeds of the auction of my large engraving "Walking on Water".

Here is the Ebay Listing.

Here is the engraving. A is the figure on the right; O is on the left.

Thank you very much for taking the trouble to read this.
