I received an e-mail from the art teacher (the daughter of a friend and former co-worker - see the album here of Gerry's office) at Leo Nickerson School. The students are painting chairs in various themes and auctioning them with proceeds going to the Stollery Children's Hospital. There will be a silent auction of other donated art in conjunction with the live auction of the chairs.
I confirmed that I would donate a miniature vignette. The more I thought about it, I wanted to do a miniature of a portion of the art studio. So I made arrangements to go to the school and take pictures of the room on March 22.
The auction is on April 20 but the finished pieces are to be at the school on April 11. So it's a pretty tight deadline.
Got a slight extension on the deadline and finished it April 12.
There are over 150 pieces in it and all but about 10 were made totally from scratch.
