Japan Earthquake Relief Auction

Like millions of viewers worldwide, I watched with horror last Friday, the destruction caused by an earthquake, measuring 8.9 on the Richter scale and the resulting tsunami, which wreaked havoc across Japan's coastal areas. Death toll are now in the thousands and many are injured and missing.

Following the efforts by my friends Keiko Tanabe and Tom Schaller, I would like to offer this painting to anyone who'd like to help those affected by this disaster. All proceeds at the end of the auction will be donated to the Japanese Red Cross Society (via Google's crisis response site).
