Meet Donna Colwart Richard
Donna, like Jan Wilken, is also a member of the Jefferson Art Guild and has been passing her quarantine time painting for a cause. She painted pet portraits in exchange for donations to local Non-Profit Organizations helping our community during this pandemic. What a great idea!
Donna is quite modest of her talent, saying she is merely a painter trying to improve her abilities now that she has retired. She reached out to Facebook friends on March 30, 2020, to announce her idea to paint pet portraits for donations. The choice of non-profit organizations was up to the recipient of the portraits and worked on an honor system. Donation amounts were suggested based on her normal asking price of the portraits.
