Alex Lifeson's A Brush of Hope painting raises $7,600 for the Kidney Foundation
10:49AM EST | comments (7) |

The Kidney Foundation of Canada's annual A Brush of Hope charity auction took place last week and Alex Lifeson along with dozens of other Canadian celebrities donated paintings to be auctioned off to raise money for the charity. Alex's painting for this year was a self portrait that ended up being sold for a whopping $7,600! Alex has participated in the auction a number of times over the last several years but had to skip last year due to the Clockwork Angels tour. You can check out the auction listing online here, and follow A Brush of Hope on Facebook for all the latest news and information on the project.

Just listening to the radio Jupe. CA is my favorite and always will be until the next one. Power Windows is a close second. Man, all the opinions about CA are all over the board but I have felt to be mostly positive. Have a great day!

what are you listening to today Jim? I did a complete listen thru of CA this morning in my work van. Despite people calling it "an abortion", "a disjointed mess", "a weak effort", I still think it's a very kick-ass album for 3 guys who were almost 60 when they wrote/recorded it!
