The Auction was for a local school district to make sure that their students will continue to have access to the Arts and to Arts Programs in their schools. For obvious reasons, I am passionate about keeping Arts in the Schools, so I was thrilled to participate this year and hope I will be asked back again.
Here are some photos depicting this Buntacular Event!
Eva Zeisel. I loved those!!
The next few photos are of a Pretty Darn Special Something that we were able to witness. It was sort of a performance art extravaganza! When it was first described to me, I wasn't sure how I felt about it. I guess my point in saying that is that I was NOWHERE NEAR Prepared to be this impressed.
The piece was performed by Molly Glover, who is now 18 years old. What she does is a thing called Speed Painting, and it was not something I was familiar with, but it was FASCINATING! Molly puts on music and paints with her hands on a large sheet of black paper. The process lasts only a couple of minutes, but she produces a masterpiece in the process.
This is a video that I found on YouTube of Molly actually performing/ making a different painting. It is amazing to watch!! Check it out!
Below, however, are some pictures of Molly completing this process in front of us. I think she is giving this particular painting style up to go to art school, so this was very possibly her last performance. What an awesome thing to witness!
Voila!! John Lennon!!
Well, for now, let's relax in front of this nice fire.
