Erika Rachel ALS Ice Bucket Challenge Art

So I was nominated by my friend Andy Walko to participate in the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge.

I decided to take some artistic license with the challenge options and combine them a little. I dumped large amounts of paint into buckets of iced water and mixed them together till I had an icy paint mixture. 3 icy paint mixtures to be exact- one in Red, one in White, and one in Blue- the colors I believe represent ALS awareness and the ALS organization logo.

I stood atop an unstretched primed duck canvas while 2 friends and an Airbnb guest dumped the icy paint over my head.

The painting dried and sold via Ebay auction to raise money for the ALS foundation. Below is the video and the photos of the finished painting.
