1507 Family Heirlooms & Auction Sale
This pair of pretty frosted green glass vases, rather art deco probably from the 30's, belonged to a friend's mum and are precious to her. I placed them on this sunny window sill so that the sun could illuminate them and show them off to their best paired with this pot of blooms.
Last night 3 of my paintings went under the hammer in a live art auction in N. Ireland , Collectors could also bid via the Internet) we followed the action on-line and it was quite nerve wracking when it came to my lots, I had one sell in the early lots, but the other two were placed almost at the end of the auction, which took the best part of 4 hours, I think by then most people were exhausted but I managed to sell another one, with the last one falling just short of the reserve. So all in all quite a successful night.. a bit more funds to pay for more frames!!
