Seems that several of my prints are always the topic of donation items for a number of non-profit organizations around the Puget Sound area. While I would love to support everyone that asks, I generally limit myself to one or two major print donations per year. This year one of my signature prints, The Lady Washington Crossing Commencement Bay, was the surprise auction item for the 2010 Citizens for a Healthy Bay (CHB) annual auction. This event, attended by people from all walks of life, included numerous local political leaders as well as Congressman Norm Dicks. In addition to raising a ton of money for the education and pollution abatement efforts of CHB, a grand time was had by all. My donation for this auction was one of my largest prints that I have done to date, measuring some 48×38 inches. Printed on an Epson wide-carriage professional printer and mounted with acid free mats and museum grade glass, she was all I could carry by myself. Given the general state of the economy, I was very pleased with the final bid price that she delivered; no doubt she will grace a wall with pride.
