Featured are oil paintings, short videos, and a blog by Leigh Cohn, who is self-taught and uses a projector technique. He has given away more than 250 artworks, which are hanging in the offices of the Balboa Park Conservancy in San Diego, Carlsbad City Hall, homes, and offices. Each year he selects a specific theme, and this year's is described below.

I’ve lived in a coastal city most of my life and the beach has given me serenity and inspiration. Now it's time to give back. In September, I will offer more than 20 paintings in exchange for donations to the Ocean Conservancy.

As of June 15th, we have raised $9,674 toward an initial goal of $10,000. My fundraising page has entertaining updates, and paintings that I've given to donors are displayed there. Check it out!
