“My original goal was to find 54 artists, in order to correlate with Ellen’s 54th birthday, which is two days before the event, but after putting out the call to artists, the response was so overwhelming that I just couldn’t turn away any interested artists, so I ended up with 67 artists. The more the merrier. And it’s more potential money to be raised for The Trevor Project.” says the event curator, Renda Writer.
* Jake Wilcox also designed the official flyer for the event (see next page). ** Fabian Bolanos will be painting live at the event. *** Randy Watkins once met Ellen Degeneres and had her sign a portrait he painted of her. See video of Randy getting Ellen’s autograph here: http://youtu.be/iwBzCqqXpIk

South Florida artist Lori Pratico, posing with her unique caricature portrait of Ellen Degeneres, which will be included in “The 2nd Annual Ellen Art Show,” and Renda Writer, the producer, host, and curator of the event. Lori is a professional artist and a big supporter of Renda Writer and his efforts to get on The Ellen Degeneres Show. She has participated in many of his events and also contributed an amazing portrait of Ellen Degeneres for last year’s “Ellen Art Show” in Miami. Renda brought the portrait with him and displayed it when he appeared on South Florida Today on NBC 6 Miami in January of 2011. More info on Lori and her art at http://www.LoriPratico.com.

Renda Writer, posing with a portrait of Ellen Degeneres painted by artist Lori Pratico (www.LoriPratico.com) on the set of “South Florida Today” on NBC 6 Miami. This portrait was exhibited and sold as part of “The Ellen Art Show,” which took place in Miami, FL on January 22nd, 2011 at GAB Studio (www.GABstudio.com). Renda’s appearance on NBC aired on January 19th, 2011 as promotion for the event. He was interviewed by television personality Roxanne Vargas and also had a chance to perform his poem, “Half Hearted,” on the air, which is the poem that he wants to perform on The Ellen Degeneres Show. It has been his goal to perform this poem on her show since 2007. Reaching a goal this big requires setting and reaching smaller goals first, so Renda set the goal of performing on a local South Florida NBC affiliate station and then reached it with this appearance, getting him one step closer to The Ellen Degeneres Show. After this appearance, Renda set another goal of appearing on another NBC affiliate station, and that goal was also reached when local West Palm Beach NBC affiliate station WPTV Channel 5 did a segment about Renda on the 5 o’clock news. The segment aired right after the second episode of Ellen’s 9th season. To see full clips of both of Renda’s NBC appearances, please go to his YouTube page, http://www.YouTube.com/RendaWriter.
