The Outcome of the Auction

October 27th, 2010

I am so very chuffed by the outcome of Green Abu Dhabi‘s Community Art Auction!

Thank you to all those who believed in the movement, came and supported Green Abu Dhabi, mingled and participated in the auction!

The results speak for themselves: pretty much everything – over 50 pictures and paintings (including 20 paintings done by the children from the Future Centre for Special Needs Children) – sold out!

It was a momentous occasion. So many people showed up. The place was buzzing. I certainly had a blast. And the support I got from my family, friends and colleagues was extraordinary. I am so very grateful to them all.

I’m also overjoyed by the response that my work received. And am very very happy to say that my 3 submissions – my first ever prints on show – were sold to for a total of AED 34,000/- (about USD 9,250/-)! Woo-hoo! All proceeds will of course go to the Future Centre. This donation was only made possible thanks to the generosity of spirit of two extraordinary people who believed in my work. I cannot thank them enough.

Some of my readers abroad have asked which were the pictures I finally opted to submit. One, titled “A Slow Dance”, I shared with you in yesterday’s post. Below are the other two pictures:

“Thought and Memory”

“Remains of the Day”

Each was a signed limited edition print of 1.
