Hope On The Horizon
Artist James Coleman Is Raising Funds To Benefit The Victims Of California’s Wildfires And The Thousand Oaks Shooting
Artist James Coleman, whose own neighborhood has been affected with many of his neighbors losing their homes, is donating 100% of proceeds from sales of his painting Hope On The Horizon to those affected by both the fires and the shooting.
In 2018, the strength of Southern California has been tested by devastation from wildfires and a senseless shooting in Thousand Oaks. Hearts connected by tragedy have came together to lift up their neighbors and friends.
Local artist James Coleman, who along with his wife, children and grandchildren live in Thousand Oaks and the surrounding affected areas, is donating 100% of proceeds from sales of his painting Hope On The Horizon to those affected by both the fires and the shooting.
Coleman, whose own neighborhood has been affected with many of his neighbors losing their homes, is grateful he still has a home and wants to help however he can. “We were jolted by the Borderline shooting news, so close to home. And then we were hit again by the wildfires. No one has been spared,” said Coleman. “My neighbor’s house burned down completely. The firefighters are doing everything they can to help.”
Coleman, who began his art career at Disney Studios and whose paintings appeared in classics including The Fox and the Hound, Sleeping Beauty and The Little Mermaid, has been using art to reach others his entire life. “I feel like Hope On The Horizon delivers the right message at the right time - that together we can. There might be a few dark moments, but as neighbors and Southern Californians we will find those bright moments again.”
Hope On The Horizon is available exclusively from www.JamesColeman.com with 100% of the proceeds benefiting local charities that are assisting the victims. The special painting is available as a framed limited edition of 50 giclees on canvas sized at 18x24 and hand-embellished by James Coleman for $295 or as a gallery-wrapped limited edition of 100 giclees on canvas sized at 12x16 for $99. Totebags and mugs featuring Hope On The Horizon are also available with proceeds being donated ($45 and $24.99, respectively).
“Everyone is here doing what they can to help. You see positivity everywhere on every corner,” said Coleman. “I’m proud of my hometown and I’m humbled by the good people we have here. These are my neighbors, my friends, my family. I’m honored to help in anyway I can.”
