Megan McDonald - Destination Unknown

Destination Unknown

“Destination Unknown” Acrylic on Canvas , 61cm x 76cm. This painting has was donated to the ART AID GIPPSLAND 2020 Gippsland Bushfire Appeal Exhibition Auction 2020.

I received some lovely feedback ( see below) from the family that purchased “Destination Unknown” from the ART AID GIPPSLAND 2020 Gippsland Bushfire Appeal. 

Like the title of the painting I had no idea where my painting would end up. Out of the blue it was great to hear that the painting was appreciated and holds a special meaning to the new owner.

As an artist you don’t often get such positive feedback and it really is a reminder that my work is appreciated!  

Hi Megan,

 I just wanted to thank you very much for ‘Destination Unknown’, purchased from Art Aid for Gippsland.  It arrived recently and we have installed it on the wall of our home on the Bellarine Peninsula and I just love it. 

 I also donated some work to the auction and, while looking through the online gallery of works, my husband asked me which of the works appealed to me most.  I singled out yours immediately.  He then put a bid and I was so pleased when we ‘won’ your work.  I thought that the work would be a great gift for my daughter who is planning on shifting out of home.  Due to the all the current restrictions this is now on the back-burner, so I have hung the work on our bedroom wall.   As well a beautiful composition ‘Destination Unknown’ conveys an inspiring message for these uncertain times.  Each morning I look at your painting as I prepare to face whatever the day will bring…. 

 I have grown to like your painting so much that I am now thinking that I may not give the work to my daughter when she finally shifts out and she might have to settle for some of my paintings 😀 

 Anyhow I just wanted to thank you and let you know that your work is much appreciated. I look forward to seeing more of your work when we are able to attend exhibitions once again. 

 Take care and stay safe.

Kind regards,
Sue Howard
