Sunrise Tree for Twitter Art Exhibit 2023

Good Morning – black ink and colored pencil, 7″ x 5″

Sent my 7″ x 5″ contribution off to Canada today. It is colored pencil and black ink on mixed media paper. It will benefit Urban Native Youth Association. UNYA has a philanthropic goal of $6 million to build the Native Youth Centre. Every contribution they receive will help them create a community of caring in support of Indigenous youth.

And no, I am not a sunrise person, so my knowledge of that time of the day is mostly theoretical. I was planning a sunset, but the drawing had its own idea, and I went with that. Arguments usually do not lead to a good result.

This year’s beneficiary of the Twitter Art Exhibit is Urban Native Youth Association.

We strive to empower Indigenous youth to make positive changes in their lives by offering a wide range of services, resources, and opportunities.

In everything we do here at UNYA, we take into account an understanding of trauma, aim to accept youth without judgment, and respect youth as experts in their own lives.
