UPDATE - 10/31@12:48PM: Alex's painting is now listed at eBay!

Alex Lifeson will once again be participating in The Kidney Foundation of Canada's annual A Brush of Hope charity auction this year. As they have for several years running, Alex Lifeson along with dozens of other Canadian celebrities have donated paintings to be auctioned off to raise money for the charity. Alex has participated in the fundraiser a number of times in the past, including his contribution of a self-portrait that sold for $7600 last year. Alex's painting for this year is a photorealistic rendering of himself enjoying some wine with Geddy Lee that can be seen on the Brush of Hope Facebook page. The 2014 Brush of Hope Masquerade Gala and silent auction takes place this coming Thursday evening at the Fredericton Convention Centre in Fredericton, NB. The live eBay auction then kicks off Friday at 12PM and runs through Sunday, November 9th. For all the latest news and information be sure to follow A Brush of Hope on Facebook. Thanks to J.R. for the heads up.
