THE JOYOUS JOURNEY RAFFLE
WIN THIS PAINTING! 100% of raffle ticket sales go to fund Artstart's mission.
One painting leads four friends and artists on an unexpected journey.
The "Joyous Journey" is a 24x36 inch, oil on canvas painting donated by Sonoma County Art Trails to help raise funds for Artstart. But it is also so much more than oil on canvas. It is a collaborative journey of four Art Trails artists -Micah Schwaberow, Nicole Ours, Gen Zorich, and Michael Palace.
This painting began with Micah. When he passed in 2022, Nicole chose to continue the painting, Sadly, she passed 3 months later. Gen then completed the painting, deriving great healing and comfort from the process. When it came time to frame the painting, Michael, a furniture maker, handmade a custom frame out of cherrywood in honor of Nicole, who a few years prior had gifted him cherrywood from a cherry tree in her yard.
“Joyous Journey” captures the artists' spirit, love, and devotion to each other, to Art Trails and to support of young artists.
