These are all my silent auction goodies from various "Wet Paint Sales". My first purchase was at the 2008 Lunenburg Wet Paint Sale..."Garden Chair" painted by Anne Fraser. I have looked for information about Anne on line, but I can't find a web site for her and I don't know anything about her. But I love this painting. That chair is just waiting for me to sit in. One thing I learned after last year, was not to bid on watercolours that weren't a standard size...otherwise, framing can be quite expensive. I would have bid on a 2nd painting by Anne Fraser this year (one of my favourite scenes from Blue Rocks) but it was also a non standard size and I didn't want another costly framing experience.
This year I bought 3 little paintings ($15, $20, $25). I can't find info about any of the artists online. Here are this year's finds:
From the Mahone Bay sale, by Pat(?) Galloway. I love old houses, and thought this 5 x 5 acrylic painting was charming.
Above, "Stump" by Mary Catherine McDonnell done in mixed media (ink and watercolour I think). Sorry about the reflection, it's behind glass. Painting is 3 1/2 by 5 inches, matted to 5 x 8.
And tiny "Lunenburg Church" by Nicole Power. Acrylic, 3 inches by 4 inches. I photographed this church back in January while on a photo expedition with my photography club.
Very happy with my little gems!
