I'd like to thank the Academy. Oops, sorry, I'm in the wrong dream sequence.
Seriously, I'd like to thank everyone from Chesterfield Arts for hosting a fun and glamorous fundraising event last night. Thanks for all their work bringing the arts to our community. And last but not least,thanks for giving my donated painting, Mother Bird, the first place prize at Art Feast. It was CASH ($500) and financed my bidding for the evening, allowing me to acquire a Paul E piece I was dying for, how cool is that!??! And what a rush to walk in to this fabulous evening and find out I had won a prize oh be still my heart, this is the stuff I DO dream about.
Of course this also meant my art had moved from silent auction to LIVE auction status. Oh my God, I was afraid I was going to barf when they auctioned it off and, as luck would have it, I was really (yes, REALLY) in the bathroom at that time, thankfully not barfing.
