Irma Relief Fund

With the destruction left in the wake of Hurricane Irma having left our little Island home in ruins, hope has been in short supply for many of our friends and family. While we are devastated with the loss of our home, we are doing everything we can to return to Key West and help our community rebuild.

We are making Russ's vibrantly colorful, island-insired paintings available as rewards for your generous support - every piece depicts a breathtaking sunrise, his special message of hope of a new day.

These hand-painted recreations of Russ' original works are available in 5X7, 8X10 and 11X14 standard canvas panels and are shipped in a protective photo bag. 5X7 versions come with a black matte ready and are ready to frame. All will come with a handwritten message of thanks on a post card from the Conch Republic.

To all those that have already sent help, and to those willing to contribute, we are eternally grateful.

Russ, Becca and Cinnamon.
