Last week, the bowl I painted for the Empty Bowl Benefit for the Calgary Food Bank went up for sale. And since then, nothing much has happened. Â Sure (and thankfully) my mom placed a low-bid, but that’s really about it.
Right now (and for the past four days) my japanese-inspired bowl has been sitting at a lowly $80. Â Yikes. Â That hurts. Â While I understand that you may not love my bowl, isn’t someone willing to donate at least $100 to the Calgary Food Bank? Â Plus, I’m including two tickets to 70s superstar Boz Scaggs! Â Who? Â Ask your parents, they’ll know and yes, they’ll drool. Â Did someone say Mother’s Day gift? I’m desperate.
I’ve decided that at the end of the day, my bowl cannot go for less than $100. Â I’m sitting so close to the bottom, it really is embarrassing, especially when it isÂ for such an important and wonderful charity. Â I’m I above buying my own bowl? Nope. Â But why don’t you at least take a look, maybe gather some friends in your office and make a group donation. After-all, the bowl makes for an excellent candy dish or a place for keys.
Plus, it really doesn’t match my living room.
(And yes, they will ship anywhere in Canada!)
