The Heart of Art Event

On May 12th I participated in a fundraiser for our local Art Center, “the Heart of Art”. I thought my nature hearts would be perfect for the event. I dropped off my 36×24 inch piece near the end of March and didn’t see it until the day of the event. When I walked in my piece was the first thing people saw as they walked into the silent auction. I couldn’t believe it!

I walked around to see the other things for sale and saw a lot of cool pictures, necklaces, clothing and basket packages . I had my eye on a few things too, but was outbid near the end. The one I really wanted was in the top left picture, the black boats against a red sunset.

This one was done by my art teacher Kay Doyle

At the end of the day I noticed my “Love of Nature” picture had sold for a greater amount than I thought it would. When I looked at the name of its new owner I just about cried! It was my art teacher from fifth grade ❤! For some reason it felt like one of my biggest achievements 😊. I learned a lot from this fundraiser and think I’ll do another one in the future.

See you all this Saturday. Now that I don’t have any projects until September, I have more time for the blog and my art! I’ve got a lot of catching up to do 😉 . See ya soon!
