For Kirk

The Portland street performer and comedian Kirk Reeves has recently had some medical issues and could really use some help to make ends meet.

I know only too well what it’s like to be overwhelmed by medical bills, so I wanted to pitch in. I decided to sell my 2007 portrait of him and give all of my proceeds from the sale to him.

When I told Anna and Graylan of Anka Gallery what I was doing, they organized an art auction to benefit Kirk.
