This is my last year to donate art to the Dundas Valley School of Art Annual Auction since we moved back to Alberta in May. I did leave with 3 paintings in this COVID19 year’s auction that ended up being done online. All three paintings have bids on them so I don’t have to worry about how I was going to pick them up if they didn’t sell.
Every year, for the last nine years, I have sold one or two paintings in this annual auction. The surprise is the painting that is generating a lot of bids.
This is a very nostalgic painting depicting a simpler life with both milk and newspapers delivered to the door. I suppose animal lovers especially cat lovers would find this painting compelling. Sometimes it’s hard to know what will sell so I suppose the best thing is to paint what I love. This painting was fun to do. I love the black cat in his relaxed pose.
The other two each have a bid and both are lovely landscapes.
