This Saturday I had a lovely time painting a ceramic bowl that will be glazed and auctioned off as part of a fundraiser for Room One, a non-profit wellness and health center in the Methow Valley. My bowl and others by local artists will be on exhibit in Winthrop and Twisp for preliminary bidding and the final bidding will happen Saturday, October 9th at the Soup Dinner in Winthrop’s Red Barn. Should be a great event! I’m excited to see my bowl glazed— I’ve never painted pottery before. When I was contemplating what to paint, my husband Darin said, “paint what you know…” so the bowl has penguins all around it and a blue interior with one little penguin in the very bottom. I hope it holds many tasty meals for whomever wins it.
