SAQA Benefit Auction: Report Card

I am SO excited!  

Week One of the SAQA Benefit Auction is just complete and Week Two has JUST begun.  

Pictured here is how super Week One was for me :^)

I love the fact that I am able to add to my collection of OP (other people's) work.  I do have to admit, however, that 'winning' at auction is a value added thrill. 

Imagine, I have Holly Altman's hand will remind me of the time in Houston when she and I got horribly soaked...drenched...and she, of course, had a friend on the staff of a very nice, nearby hotel who, when she saw us, ran and retrieved wonderfully warm towels for us to dry with, not the least bit concerned that we were not actually guests.  Holly's friends, boy, they are good to know.

Cathy Smith is my current SAQA co-rep for CT.  I am on my last couple of months as spot will soon be filled by my friend Barbara Coleman Adams.  The way I figure it, this piece will be a remembrance of Cathy and my service together.  Now I have to work on Barb to contribute a 12" square for next year .^)

Tomorrow! SAQA's Benefit Auction

Hello, Sunshine!
Tomorrow SAQA's Benefit Auction begins at 2pm Eastern.  Click on the link to read how the auction works.  I always try to 'win' a piece.  There were a couple of years I was unsuccessful :^(

But I have persevered!  I figured out that I have been participating in the Benefit Auction for seven years now and I have a very nice collection :^)  It is such a satisfying way to support SAQA:  first making a 12" square piece AND then 'winning' other artists' work.

At this point my Auction collection includes work by Cathy Smith CT, Sandy Gregg MA, Debbie Bein NY, Vivien Zepf NY, and Lutgard Gerber-Billiau Belgium.  Now I will be trolling the pages again this year very stealthily....join me!!
