'Australian Koalas',

painted 2020. Robot Rocket Miniatures.

Since several weeks my heart is in pain due the tragic reports on how the enormous wildfires in Australia impact wildlife, homes, nature and humans alike. While donating what I can here and there myself I still felt the urge that this is not enough and I want to paint something with my emotions. I did with this piece.

This unique project is now raffled via the Nova Open Charitable Foundation until February 15th 2020 and the money will be donated to WIRES - Wildlife Rescue, Australia. Thank you for your help!

      Thank you, Jens. Really happy that the message is recieved and thank you for your support in the raffle!

    Beautiful painting despite the terrible and tragic subject. Kudos for supporting such a good cause. It’s distressing to come across injured or displaced wildlife and have no idea how to help but WIRES volunteers are always available here in Aus to give advice or collect animals for veterinary treatment and rehabilitation.

    • Roman LappatPLUS

      Many thanks for your Kudos. Really appreciated and if I would live closer I would be outthere to help. Sometimes it is stupid to be on the other side of the planet ...

    Painting a bit close to my heart here Roman.  Tragic but relevant.  This one out me over the edge given I tend to donate what I can to conservation and wildlife… I bought a couple hand fulls of tickets…  Thanks for this.
