Great Art to Help Raise Funds
Part of the AO’s & AOART5’s mission is “… to help our community by using our creativity, talents and hard work to assist the poor, homeless, sick, youth and uneducated in Kansas City.” – and AO is glad to assist in any way possible, and his live paintings are one way to he is able to help his Kansas City community.
AO, accompanied with his easel, paints and a pre-outlined subject on canvas, will make your event something to remember. AO will travel to your venue and spend the evening working on a predetermined subject and when its all done, the event receives an AO Original for your live auction. Event goers love watching the work-in-progress and enjoyed watching an actual live painting develop in front of their very eyes. Your guests get to see an AO original come to life.
Since Covid-19 has put many gathering on hold, AO has an alternative that fundraising committees have really enjoyed – his In-Studio “Live Paintings” for virtual online actions!
Online Virtual Auctions: AO’s In-Studio “Live Painting”
Having a virtual on-line fundraising auction? Well you can still get an AO Original painting for your fundraiser like many schools did in 2019 and early 2020 before the Covid shutdown. AO will create an “In-Studio Live Painting” and have it ready for pick-up at his new satellite studio in downtown OP (Overland Park, KS).
We know all will enjoy the beautiful work as much as AO enjoys creating it. And for AO, it is, and will always be a huge honor to create work for others in conjunction with a great cause.
Any chance AO gets to help, he will. AO’s live paintings are different than his normal 1-2 month long commission pieces. His 3-4 hour live painting pieces of work are amazing in their own unique way.
At the Live Painting events, each painting is signed by AO and ready to go to its new owner that evening. For In-Studio Live Paintings, arrangements will be made by the organization for painting pick-up.
A Versatile Designer/Painter/Artist
Although it may seem that AO only paints sports pieces, don’t be fooled, if you haven’t seen his body of work in the past 5 years, his social media channels will open your eyes. Yes, AO loves sports, but he will never shy away from live painting and helping friends and purposeful organizations and schools.
