Nathan is the three year old grandson of my friend Frank. Frank has been taking care of my teeth since I was 20 years old and now I would like to help take care of his grandson Nathan. You see Nathan has Cystic Fibrosis and is in need of various medicines, supplements and a whole array of things a three year boy should not have to contend with. As you can guess this all costs money and his family needs help. So what I propose is to auction off my painting, A Winter Morning's Sun, on Ebay next week. It is a 12x24 inch oil painting on panel and will come with the frame you see in this photo. One of my best, it has previously been featured on my blog, click here to learn more. I always intended to hold onto this one for my collection, but would now like very much to offer this to help Nathan. All of the proceeds of this sale will go directly to Nathan. The auction will begin this Monday, June 4th at 8 pm EDT and end 7 days later on Monday, June 11th at 8 pm EDT, 5 pm PDT. Please bid early and often -- let's help put a big smile on this little boy's face. To learn about Nathan and his family, visit or to learn more about me and my work, visit
