~Paint a Paddle Auction for ALS~
I was approached by my art partner in crime to participate in an Art Auction to support our local Chapter of ALS Canada. I was given a 56 inch wooden paddle and the only instructions that came with the paddle was to make art! The thought of creating art on an oar was a little challenging to the mind and after racking my brains with the "what on earth should I do to this paddle" question, the only thought that came to mind was to just go with the flow and let my imagination run wild!

Side One/Step One:
I was gifted a new wood burning kit and the first thought that came to mind was doing something with the wood burning pen. The image that was embedded in my mind was Hummingbirds. So off I went, scrolling Hummingbirds and trumpet vines with the burning pen. Hopefully for those who love art, Hummingbirds, nature, canoes and paddles, this unique piece of art might be just what you were looking for!
