It's for the kids' school Auction. Pssst, don't tell anyone...but I really don't want to give it up. Alas, it IS for something I truly love. I just hope the bidder bids generously.
I also donated my services for a custom mural. That'll be exciting! However, it just occurred to me that nobody could bid on that one. I'd be off the hook and devastated all at once. Bid people! BID!! (I'm good, I swear, I will not disappoint...)
I found out that this painting was won by the sweetest person I could have hoped would have her. A beloved teacher who took some time off from school when she had her baby. She sent me the sweetest letter, filled with such kind words...it made me feel like my peice found it's home, and I couldn't be happier. Sometimes, knowing your work ends up with the right person is worth much more than what it could have been sold for. For this I am grateful.
