Rihanna 'We Found Love' Video Inspires Charity Auction
10 November 2011, 16:00
The Barbadian singer's recent music video has led to a painting of the location being offered up for charity.
Rihanna's music video for 'We Found Love' has inspired an artist to auction off his 30 year-old watercolour painting of the strange tree seen in the video.
The 'Fly' singer was memorably told to cover up by a local farmer while filming the video in his Bangor field in September.
Artist Gordon McKnight's painting, created in 1983, is to be auctioned off for charity by the Ballygilbert Church later this month to capitalise on the video's popularity.
"I am absolutely astounded at the level of interest in the tree painting," he told BBC News.
"When the Rihanna furore came about, I dug the painting out of the attic and offered it to the church for the exhibition."
The auction, which will also include 200 other pieces of art on display at the church's exhibition, will take place from 17th to the 20th November.
Rihanna has confirmed 'You Da One' as the second track to be released from her new album 'Talk That Talk', which will debut on 11th November and be available to download from 13th November.
'Talk That Talk' is due to be released on 21st November.
