The 2010 SAQA Auction is on!
"Neopolitan" by Rose Rushbrooke
I await the SAQA auction each year with enormous excitement. Even if I never bought a single piece, I'd get immense pleasure just out of seeing so much wonderful art work on one website. It's pure eye candy - better than a 100 pound box of See's! Of course, I never don't buy something, and this year is no exception. I love Rose's work - it's imaginative, free spirited, and totally beautiful. Based on fractals, her work draws me into it as though I were being led into a magic cavern! I can look at it for hours, and never get my fill. I discovered Rose and her work earlier this year, and find myself visiting her gallery pages again and again. Each time, my spirit is lifted and my heart soars. The music of Johann Sebastian Bach, William Byrd, and Ralph Vaughn Williams affect me in the same manner. It's something I'll never be able to explain, but I don't really desire an explanation. Let's just leave it at, "It sends me!"
