Being an auctioneer at an art event is a blast! My first time (and maybe only time) doing this improv theater, while raising money and playing the gentleman in the green hat against the lady in blue.
However, today is another day and I'm focussing on creating a pastel for the Pastel Society of Southern California's annual show in Manhattan Beach. Deadline is tomorrow. What will I create?

Today we had our 3rd meeting to create an art walk event in Torrance. Our first meeting had almost 30 people at the Torrance Art Museum. Today we had 9. We are expanding our location search from old town Torrance into bigger industrial spaces, partly to include shipping containers to display contemporary art.

Tonight is the closing of the last show at the Zask Gallery in Palos Verdes at its Golden Cove location. There's a wine tasting event, and then a live auction of donated works of art to raise funds for the move into the Peninsular Center. I have donated "A Touch of Fruit".

I am the auctioneer, too.

Mmmmm - should be interesting......
