|A Cold Day, 7x5 oil|
Friday February 7 was the big art auction at the Burlington Art Centre. What a fun and exciting evening! I had never been to any kind of live auction before. The experience was a little nerve racking since I really didn't know what kind of reaction my artwork would have. There was an excellent show of people, with the gallery absolutely packed, (over 350 people). To my relief, the auctioneer was wonderful; friendly and comical. Happily my painting did sell, with a little competition between a couple of interested buyers, which made it even nicer.
