One of the most fun activities associated with the Annual SAQA Benefit Auction is being able to pick a "Dream Collection". I become a curator of my own six-pack of art pieces that have some meaning for me, and might just inspire others to participate in the auction for real -- to the benefit of both SAQA and the artists.
This year, I'm calling my collection "Pet Project", and here's what I've written about that theme:
I'm a Certified Cat Person -- and recently lost a scrawny stray despite my attempts to save him. I don't understand animal abuse any more than abuse of humans or the environment. I'm honouring "Mr. Man-cat" and my very lively Miss Pookie-cat -- as well as all other pets -- with my collection this year.
Here are the pieces I chose:
Have some fun! Pour a cuppa, visit the Benefit Auction Preview Page and pick the ones you'd put on your walls!
P.S. Many thanks to Iina Alho, who chose my piece as part of her Dream Collection, "Rhapsody in Blue". 😊 Click the link and scroll down to enjoy!
