The Painted Violins fundraiser ended Saturday night. I am thankful to report that "Remembrance Strings" was one of the violins that was purchased. I met the couple at City Art during the pre-auction last Thursday night, and they came back Saturday night and placed the winning bid. They were a lovely couple, and I very much enjoyed talking to them. Most importantly, I was able to explain the importance in the design since my artist statement had been truncated in the catalogue. I hope the violin will bring them much joy and many blessings from the Lord as they explain the symbolism to those who see it displayed in their home. Soli Deo Gloria!
