Bid on painting, help the hospice

Columbus artist Donna Rosenberg has created another original acrylic painting to benefit this year’s Our Hospice of South Central Indiana concert. She painted ex-Eagles member Don Felder’s double-neck guitar to promote his show last year.

Her new work is titled “30 Years of Saturdays in the Park: Inspiration Valley” (pictured) and features an impressionistic view of Mill Race Park’s Round Lake with the covered bridge in the background. The title of the rendering highlights the 30th anniversary of hospice concerts and also references the park’s rebirth from its days of long ago when it was known as “Death Valley.”

The original four feet by four feet work, valued at $1,500, will be auctioned online at The auction began Thursday and goes through Sept. 12.

This year’s fundraising concert will be Sept. 3 at Mill Race Park, featuring musician Peter Cetera, an original member of the rock group Chicago.
