Portraits paintings to raise funds for Smiths Falls Mission
Joe Foster knows well the struggles of an artist. The native of Perth, Ont., has been painting portraits of people and animals, along with landscapes, for the past 25 years. For the past two years, he and his wife, Nicole, have volunteered at The Mission. He decided to paint patrons of the mission based on photographs he took of them, and sell the paintings to raise money for the volunteer-run Mission, which also receives financial support from evangelical Christian churches in Smiths Falls.
