Can you keep a secret?

The Leigh Yawkey Woodson Art Museum has come up with a unique fund-raising vehicle for this year's Birds in Art. They are asking artists who wish to participate to draw or paint a "postcard". This is a 4" X 6" work to be sold for the incredible price of $25 at the show.

One of the more interesting aspects is that no one buying will know who created the pieces because all signatures will be on the back. A line will form and the first person may choose from among all the pieces. Just one piece. If he or she wishes to buy more, he/she proceeds to the back of the line and the next person has a chance to choose from the remaining pieces. Many of these pieces would sell for hundreds (or much more).

I had so much fun with my piece that I just have to share it with you. Remember, this is a secret.

Go ahead, Make My Day
