fundraising night for Wat Opot Cambodia

This is one of my oil paintings,not as good as Kees Bruins paintings,but because of copy right I can't put his paintings on my blog,but please visit his web site to view his work.

In two weeks time we are holding a fundraising night with artist Kees Bruin and baritone Dr.Jeremy Baker at Sumner to raise money for the Wat Opot project in Cambodia and the Ingwavuma orphan trust fund of New Zealand,an aids orphanage in Africa.

Kees Bruins paintings are amazing in detail and realism,but also very moving. I feel very privileged that Kees and Jeremy are willing to give up their time to be part of this fundraising and many people will be touched by his paintings and Jeremy beautiful voice.

What a blessing to be part of this event and to be able to organize this evening.

The evening is at Sumner Anglican Church,Wakefield Terrace,Christchurch 18Th of April at 7.30 tickets are $20. Door sales available,cash only. Contact me on

I had more immunisations today of hepatitus and the flu shot,need only one more round to go and then rabies shots in April. Glad when all the shots are done, they make me feel a bit tired afterwards.

Kees Bruins website is to view his visionary realism paintings.


  1. So many people belong to organizations that need to raise money. Fundraising is becoming a way of life for many. If you need to raise money I would recommend you explore the different options at Easy Fundraising Ideas. They have lots of options for groups of any size. Many do not require any upfront money too.

    Thank you for your advise. I browsed the website,because this fund raising night is for my trip and work at the Wat Opot aids orphanage Cambodia in July,August this year we are organizing this art/music event and indeed it is a lot of work and part of life now,but will be worth all the effort. I will put photographs on my blog of the event.
