I did a painting for Ava's preschool's silent auction again this year. (You can see the painting I did for last year here.) Titled, studio, it's a nod to Robert Rauschenberg, as I've always been a big fan of Rauschenberg, and always will.
I never did find out who bought my painting last year. It's weird to think that somebody has a painting of mine in their home (or in their storage or closet), and they don't even know who did it. I did put my name and number on the back, but I've never gotten a call from the owner. So, here's another year, and another anonymous person will own a Ward Jenkins original. It is sort of tough to let go of something that you put your heart into for a short amount of time. To let go of something that you created is one of the hardest things to do for an artist. Hence, it'll be extremely hard on me and Andrea when we have to let go of our little ones as they go off to school. Our little creations.
