Painting Auctioned for Ronald McDonald House

Papa Smurf Dope McDonalds - ©2018 Beau Tardy Artist
Mixed media & acrylic paint on board.

At Comicpalooza this year, artists were picked to auction off their work to raise funds for the Ronald McDonald House Charities which provide shelter, support and resources to families who travel far from home for the medical care their child needs. The art was made live on site during a two hour period and then auctioned off. Here is my entry that was snapped up by a lucky collector.

My Wimpy Painting for a Houston Heights Restaurant was Stolen!

What a crazy story! In February I painted this piece for Balls Out Burgers a restaurant in Houston Heights and it was stolen from the restaurant along with the cash register!

The painting was mixed media acrylic, spray paint with stencils on paper 24"x30". After framing it and delivering it I heard nothing back from Balls Out Burgers. When I had delivered the painting I got a weird vibe from the guy who I handed it to. I was told he was the manager but he just kinda took the painting without even saying thanks! Anyway, after a month with no news I emailed them to see if they even liked the painting. The response was that the painting had been stolen! Apparently someone made off with a bunch of money and the painting. How crazy is that? The nice people from customer service said they did not know that nobody had contacted me to say thanks. They offered me free burgers too, which I will gladly accept.
