In this difficult time for state parks, it is good to know that there is no shortage of creative people willing to use their talents to help state parks in any way they can.
One such creative mind is Karin H. Leonard, founder of PaintTheParks.com. Karin recently launched this art website in order to raise funds and awareness for California state parks, and National parklands worldwide. Karin’s personal quest is to paint many parks, and to donate from the sale of those paintings to the respective park foundations.
“I am inviting artists from California and all around the world to participate in this journey,” said Karin. “The quest to paint the parks grew out of my passion for painting, and lifelong love of nature – and with that the intense desire to protect and preserve these precious places all over the earth. Several California artists have already come forward to join the quest, and I am sure many will follow.”
Participating artists contribute to preservation of nature reserves, as they donate a minimum of 10% from the sale of their parks paintings to State and National Park Associations.
“Our credo is ‘Paint, Participate, Preserve’,” said Karin.
