Digital painting of Blessed Cardinal John Henry Newman

 

Last Friday night, October 2nd, I was invited to attend a fundraiser dinner at the UPEI campus to raise money for the Catholic Studies program. I was asked to donate a portrait of Blessed John Henry Newman for an auction and gift to the speaker (Dr.Peter Erb) who would be talking about him. The theme of the night was centered around this Cardinal. The night was a great success and people were very pleased with the work I created, especially Dr. Peter Erb. It was so wonderful to get some local recognition, dress up, and have a very fancy dinner with friends from the Diocese. I hope to do something like this again someday!
