As a fund raiser the City of Watertown local artists paint canvas  banners.  These banners are then hung on Main Street throughout the summer. Last Friday evening they were auctioned off.  People were fired up to buy banners.  Last year 39 banners brought in $1600.  This was barely enough to cover the cost of materials. This year over $6000 was raised!!!

Four of the ladies I paint with painted banners. Two of the banners received awards. Just the four of us brought in nearly $1000. It is so increditable to hear people bidding against each other to own  something that you painted.

This banner sold for $250.  I am sure it will like it’s new home in Texas.  Thanks Allece for wanting a piece of your mother’s art.  Enjoy!!
