37761350_1555357700997068_r.jpegAs many of you already know, my sister and brother-in-law lost everything to a horrific fire Tuesday night  March 12th in Yonkers,  NY.   The fire raged  throughout the night and the next morning.   The apartment building is a complete loss and Robin and Scott are left with only the clothes on their backs.  They lost their apartment, their car  parked in the building's parking garage, and both of their studios .   As working artists, they've  also lost 30 years of inventory and art work from the destruction of their studios.

So many people have asked how they can help.  Quite frankly, any donation would be helpful because they have nothing left and have to start completely over. Our campaign goal is set at $50,000 which may seem like a lot, but it is only a small percentage of what it is going to take for them to rebuild their lives.

Thank you in advance for your support & kindness!   Robin and Scott are currently dealing with the complications of recovery after this fire but they have expressed they are "humbled by the outpouring of love and tenderness from all of you."

Feel free to repost this link wherever you think it will do the most good. We are a long way from our goal with very little time left but we are hopeful.

As a special thank you Scott Duce has offered to paint a 5" x 5" oil on wood panel painting for donors who have donated (or will) , $1,000.00 or more to this Gofundme campaign. Scott has advised that it may be several months before he has a studio established again but your painting will be sent as soon as he is able to produce work once more.
But don't worry they will have something else for each of you.
Thank you!

Update: Scott and I want to thank all of you again for your support and kind words over the last few weeks. I believe we are over the initial shock of the fire and are doing what we can to slowly begin rebuilding our lives and studios. It feels at times like a monumental task and one that is necessarily painful and hampered by the loss of all of our archives and all of our personal records. In addition, because our place was on an upper floor of 1 Garrett Place, near the source of the fire, we have been denied re entry and so any hope we had of salvaging momentos has now been dashed. This is an odd and painful loss after so many. However, we are approaching things one task at a time and looking forward to a time when what to have for dinner is the most difficult question of the day. I am posting a drawing by my old friend and mentor, artist Rick Bartow. I think Rick would have liked it posted here. Titled, reasonably, "red wing".
