Howard and the Archie Foundation #FindHoward STARTS TODAY

#FindHoward 30th May 2015

Howard celebrates his 70th Birthday in June and has decided to donate more of his immediate time to worthwhile causes; therefore over the next six months he is embarking on a marathon fund-raising event for the Archie Foundation.

Howard will be painting  twelve images in Scotland, giving avid followers an opportunity to see him in action, doing what he loves most, painting outdoors; capturing the ’emotional realism’ of some of Scotland’s most beautiful locations!

The project has been named #FINDHOWARD and at the end of the six months the finale event will be held at the Marcliffe Hotel at Pitfodels. The images will be sold with a large proportion of the proceeds going to The Archie Foundation; this is to raise the necessary funding to enable the Foundation to undertake a Digital Art Project at RACH (Royal Aberdeen Children’s Hospital) and as Howard passionately believes that everyone should have the opportunity to enjoy art, it couldn’t be a more fitting cause!

The event starts today and a £70 gift voucher can be won if you’re the first person to #FindHoward!
