Thu, Dec 10, 2015@8:53PM | comments

Alex Lifeson has been involved with the Kidney Foundation of Canada's A Brush of Hope charity auction for the past ten years. His latest entry was titled Blind Date Picnic and ended up raising $4,733 in the organization's annual online auction last month. Alex's 2014 painting was a photorealistic rendering of himself enjoying some wine with Geddy Lee titled L'ami Geddy a L'ami Louis which ended up selling for a whopping $10,100! The Kidney Foundation has just made this 2014 painting available as a limited-edition print signed by both Geddy Lee and Alex Lifeson. From the announcement:

... The Kidney Foundation of Canada, Atlantic Branch and Canadian great Alex Lifeson have teamed up to produce another round of exclusive limited edition prints. Only 325 prints have been made of L'ami Geddy a L'ami Louis. Each print is numbered and Alex Lifeson has personally signed each individual print. That's right, each print has Alex Lifeson's ORIGINAL signature on it. As a bonus, due to the prints' unique nature, Geddy Lee's original autograph will also be found on the print. The print is on high quality, heavy stock, acid free paper. In addition, each print comes with a certificate of authenticity, signed by the Executive Director of the Atlantic Branch of The Kidney Foundation of Canada, confirming that the print you have purchase is one of only 325 for L'ami Geddy a L'ami Louis. The certificate also shows the print number (eg. Print No. 33 Limited Edition of 325). The certificate is printed on linen paper, making it ideal for framing with the art print or for displaying on its own. ...

Each print costs $500 CDN and can be purchased at this location. Thanks to John at for the heads up.
