Selling custom paintings by Paris Myers to help families and individuals in need in Oregon get locally grown food during the pandemic. All profits from this Fundly will be donated to participating local farms.
Happy New Year!
I’m excited to announce that the last custom paintings for Paintings for Produce are now complete (a total of over 50 artworks)! With your support, we successfully purchased locally grown, organic food for many Oregon families impacted most by Covid-19 from participating local farms.
Thank you to everyone who donated to this community initiative!
Special thanks to Gathering Together Farm for being an incredible community partner.

In just under two weeks we have raised $3,140! Yesterday, April 10th, three more families were given their Gathering Together organic produce baskets. In these past two weeks, six families (equating to 26 individuals) were given fresh, local produce. Because of your generosity, Paintings for Produce will be able to keep funding produce baskets for many weeks.
I have completed six paintings so far, and it is an absolute joy to work on these artworks for you, the donors. The painting attached to this email is "Yellow Rose", 9x12 inches, oil on Arnhem paper.

I hope everyone is safe and healthy at this time.
I want to thank you all for your amazing support of this campaign. Together, we have raised $1,840. On April 3rd, we provided three families with organic produce baskets from Gathering Together Farm resulting in 18 people getting food.
Additionally, I am thrilled to announce that the Gazette-Times, the primary local Newspaper, has just published an article on Paintings for Produce. Here is the link to check it out: https://www.gazettetimes.com/entertainment/arts-and-theatre/artist-will-work-for-food/article_a866e360-2dc7-53dc-9c02-cfd301193e5f.html
Thank you all for your generous support of this campaign.
I am so excited that Paintings for Produce has already reached $380 in donations. Because of donations, eight families in need will be given free, organic, large produce baskets from Gathering Together Farms in Philomath, Oregon this coming Friday, April 3rd!
Every $50 equates to one large, all-organic produce basket!
Please spread the word so we can feed our community using creativity.
The more money raised, the more families we can provide food to over a longer period of time.
If you or someone you know would like to be a recipient of a basket, please email [email protected]
It is a first come first served policy!
