The Painted Bra Art Project

I little while ago I was asked to photograph some art.
Which seems redundant now that I think of it.

Let me rewind and start at the beginning...it's a great story: My friend Anna Braden, a painter, found herself in her studio one day, paint brush in hand, engaged in a staring contest with a blank canvas.
The canvas won.

Unable to find inspiration there, she whipped off her bra and decided to paint that instead.
She posted it on FaceBook and a movement was born.

The Painted Bra Art Project.

People from all over the world followed suit; painting their own undergarments and posting them on FaceBook.
The response was overwhelming. You can view their work here. Anna then organized an online auction and was able to raise $10,500 for the Liz Hurley Cancer Fund at Huntsville Hospital.

In a continued effort to raise money to find a cure for breast cancer Anna and I collaborated with a few of these artists and are happy to offer these Christmas inspired note cards.

They are available through Etsy.
Ten percent of the proceeds will go straight to the Liz Hurley Cancer Fund.

I hope you like them!
