I really like 'colour field' abstract paintings and recently found Alma Woodsey Thomas' work, which I hope I can see in person one day.
She was one of the first African American women to get a fine arts degree (in 1924) and she worked as a school art teacher until 1960.
When she retired she went back to college to study art history and started painting these beautiful colour field works in her kitchen. She had her first exhibition when she was 75.
UK alternatives to Salvation Army
You might like to donate to The Outside Project, Centrepoint, Shelter, Crisis, or the Big Issue Foundation who are all providing services for people experiencing homelessness and campaigning for decent housing for everyone

salvation army, LGBT discrim, violence, so-called 'pro life' stance
Re: last boost, however they're trying to rebrand themselves now, until a couple of years ago the Salvation Army (in the UK at least) openly and officially opposed LGBTQIA rights and that's reason enough to avoid them. They're also extremely anti-abortion, despite winning contracts in recent years to run shelters for women who've experienced violence, many of whom may be facing unwanted pregnancy.
practice pages for comic colouring
If any masto #comics creators have some inked pages/panels they wouldn't mind me using for colouring practice please shout!
People have kindly made some lineart available on DeviantART but it's almost all pin ups and I really want to practice using colour as a storytelling tool across 2 or 3 pages.
Plus it's mostly superheroes and I have some good practice pages for them already.
I've been doing some more comic colouring recently, please enjoy this pin up of sad Batman, my perpetual problematic fave.
