Local artist Marty Wilson signed his pencil drawn pictures and accepted donations for his foundation “One Gulf One Goal” which works to preserve, conserve, and protect the Gulf of Mexico. He also had a raffle going on where you put in one dollar and had the chance to win one of his pictures. One hundred percent of all proceeds made tonight will go to Marty’s foundation.
“I thank God every day that he blessed me with some ability to paint paintings and I use that to feed my family. I count my blessings, so you know, I’m a lucky man. I get to paint paintings for a living and people buy them,” said Wilson.
You can find more information on his artwork at his Facebook page “One Gulf One Goal.”
