Tegan & Sara-Camila Grey Paintings//HRC





The girls painted these backstage before the Washington D.C. True Colors show this past June, amidst the worst heat wave D.C. has ever seen as well as not even getting to have their own sound check. Despite it all, the paintings are adorable, and I know you'd all love to own them, so if you're in the D.C. area, come on out to the dinner this Saturday and place a bid! It's money well spent, not just for the paintings, but as a donation to the biggest GLBT advocacy organization in the U.S. (and god knows we need all of the help we can get! Maybe someday we'll be as cool as Canada...) The last painting you see on this page was actually done by Camila Grey of Uh Huh Her. I don't know if it's actually a painting per say as opposed to an eclectic ensemble of images stenciled together...BUT I LOVE IT!!!

i love the eye one. its pretty awesome (as are all of them, but especially that one).

you know, my dad and i were driving around and saw all kinds of signed about taking the metro this weekend to avoid traffic, and i knew it was national coming out day, but i didn't know there was anything going on. that dinner may have been one of the events that culd have caused major traffic jams. wish i had gone.
