I recently donated this painting to our local public TV station for their annual on-air art auction.  800 pieces of art were submitted and only 268 were chosen - including mine! This photo is from the art preview gala last Monday. Tonight the painting was auctioned off and sold for $1500! That’s the most a painting of mine has ever sold for. And 100% goes to the nonprofit tv station! In exchange, I get a lot of credibility and the knowledge that my art helps my favorite nonprofit in sacramento. I also got to be one of the on-air auctioneers for 2 hours - it’s always such fun to be on TV!!

I saw your email a bit late and just missed your painting being showcased!  :(   

Congratulations on the sale and supporting non-profits.  :congrats:

 :clap: :clap: :clap: Oh! Sharon, we are so proud of you and CONGRATULATIONS.  You will always be blessed for your kindness in helping others who are less fortunate by donating and giving of your time.  You must be so proud that your painting fetched $1,500 which illustrates what a good artist you really are and as I said before, we are just so very proud of you.   :flowers:

Thank you, my friends! It wouldn’t have sold for this much money if I hadn’t had the advice from all of you while I was painting this - so this is really a PB success story. And Patricia - this is the most money one of my paintings has ever sold for - you should have seen me jumping for joy around the TV studio last night! Val - how fun you’re on my distribution list and saw the announcement! I know the pre-show marketing I did made a difference - 3 people on that list were bidding against each other during the auction. It was so exciting to watch the numbers go up!!
Cheers,
Sharon

How cool you saw me! And the color of the dress is actually an eggplant hue. No wearing black on TV - just jewel tones!!
Cheers,
Sharon
