Last weekend was Mackinley’s school Fair and we decided to “brave” the whole day with Rainer in tow. Luckily, there was a ride that he absolutely loved and the lady running the ride was happy for him to stay on after she called “time”, and for me to just keep handing her tickets!!!
I just love people with understanding and common-sense xx
On another exciting note…as you all know I participated in Christy Tomlinson’s ever-so-popular “She Art” workshop and am still on a “high” afterwards. So I was so happy with the canvases I produced during the classes that I donated this one to the School’s Fair Auction
I was really nervous because on the day I saw that another local mixed media artist had donated a much bigger and bolder canvas (not a “SheArt” type subject) and my heart sank. So the auction began with me outside the hall with Rainer chatting away….and I’m noticing that all the Lots before mine (No.7) were going for well below the value price listed on the sheet.
So the Auctioneer starts bids for my canvas and I’m thinking…..”Here we go again. It’ll go for about $20 coz no-one understands mixed media….” (can you hear the violins playing?? LOL)
Then the bidding heats up…..$30……$40………$50 (my secret reserve)……..$60 OMG………$80 OOOOMG…….$100 NOW I’M ALMOST STANDING……….
So now I’m happier and the violins have stopped playing…..100% of that $110 goes to the School and I get a creative-ego boost.
Yes, even the most capable-looking people get pangs of self-doubt. I just needed someone who had no idea who I am and what it all meant to just simply LOVE IT!
So, if this looks like something you’d like to give a try, I’m holding another fundraising online class. But this time, instead of a scrapbooking layout, a lot of people have requested a mixed media canvas.
I’m happy to oblige.
Here’s a sneak of what we’ll be creating……
