Postponed art lottery

Dear friends from Norway, Ecuador, and other countries.

I am contacting you now to inform you that I was unable to organize the ticket sales and the raffle for the art lottery, first scheduled for December 2019. The raffle is scheduled for early May 2021.

The delay is due to the exhibtion scheduling and COVID-19.

The painting shown above will be delivered to the winner, regardless of the country of residence.

This painting is my work and is part of the collection of 60 paintings of the project "extraction of oil in vulnerable nature." The dimensions are 1.60m X 2.00m and has a value of 20,000 USD.

However, I am donating this painting to collect funds for social work, as is stated on the ticket. I cannot fulfill this work without selling enough lottery tickets, and obviously I depend on your help in buying the tickets.
