Chizzy's paintings when exposed to normal light; make the color jump off the canvas and when the lights go out, the painting takes on a whole new and striking look by glowing in the dark!

The fine art works of Chizzy the Artist begin with a veil of emotions bursting from his soul and creating colorful paintings that speak differently to everyone.

"I have been creating art as long as I can recall understanding how to put my thoughts into reality,drawing, painting, sculpting, music or anything else that moved the artist in me. I have put my very soul into each piece of art giving individual attention to the very essence of the feelings inspiring particular sections of each painting or sculpture."

Chizzy's paintings—and art clothing—when exposed to normal light, make the colors jump off the canvas—and when the lights go out, the paintings takes on a whole new and striking look—by glowing in the dark, creating a bright variable greenish light—adding a 3rd dimension to the painting. Specialty lighting, such as track lighting, as well as sunlight tend to give the best results. The glow-in-the-dark clothing works wonderfully with stage lighting.

Chisholm said he came up with the fundraiser idea after taking a tour of the Ronald McDonald House, which had bare walls that created a dark atmosphere. To add some color, Chisholm devised a program that would feature paintings for sale from 10 to 12 artists each month until December. The artwork would be hung on the walls at the Ronald McDonald House and 25 percent of each purchase would be donated to the house.

After posting two advertisements on Facebook and Craigslist, Chisholm said 80 artists from around the world responded, wanting to participate. "This is a win-win situation because artists are struggling heavily," Chisholm said, "and artists love to give, and this really helps us do both."

Besides offering their artwork, Chisholm and four of the artists will be painting murals of rainforests, outer space and positive images in the Ronald McDonald courtyard. "The courtyard used to have dingy walls and was half landscaped," Chisholm said. "Families were supposed to go there and gather solace and get rid of the tough stress they deal with all day long, and now they have something beautiful to look at."
