This is the fifth piece I am going to auction off, a fragment of things from my studio. It’s a curious way to tidy up. Still, to be honest there’s not much tidying being done. Some packing and posting, hardly enough painting. And I’ve been away for a few days, and also worrying that the target might not be met for the fundraiser, but then an alternative charity will be offered for those who have bid in that eventuality. But for now, let’s press on, see what happens.
To bid, please place a comment on this posting. This one is going to be closed in a couple of days from now I think, unless I am out walking the dogs. Sorry if the process is a bit ramshackled. I have to action the comments, so it takes time.
If you win the auction I will ask you to donate the money directly to Jane’s amazing initiative to place a copy of The Lost Words in every primary school in Scotland.
In the past few days Penguin have thrown their support mightily behind Jane’s project by massively reducing the price of the books for her. This will now enable her to place a book not just in every Primary School in Scotland, but also into Secondary and Special Schools.
This one is made up from 4 pieces of transfer leaf, 8cms sq each, and is the gold soul of a finch, in search of a charm.
Bidding starts at £32. All bids in £ sterling, but happy to post anywhere. Please share.
And The Lost Words has been nominated for, and shortlisted for The Nation’s Favourite Nature Book, so curious as ours is so young, but what company to be in. Please take a look at the shortlist. Such wonderful books. And vote if you wish. I voted for Tarka, a book I have loved long.
This Auction is now closed. Thank you.
