Stars On Canvas
Tomorrow the Catto Gallery in London opens Stars On Canvas, an exhibition of doodles donated by celebrities to the Willow Foundation, a charity which provides special days for seriously ill 16 to 40 year olds. It was set up by goalkeeper Bob Wilson and his wife in memory of their daughter Anna, who died of cancer aged 31. The exhibition runs for only 3 days. The online auction of more than 300 canvases has already opened on eBay and closes on 6 December 2010. A bowl of fruit painted by Wayne Rooney must be the perfect Christmas pressie for a budding football hooligan. Astro Boy is by Jonathan Ross. Who? Mr Ross might have had a little help from artist Julie-Anne Gilburt, who touched up some of the celebrities' efforts. Click the title link to learn more.
