I couldn't resist posting my friend Jeff's painting that was auctioned off at last Friday's A Furry Affair. It went for a fine price to a deserving bidder - but no wonder - what a fine furry creature she is!
Jeff is also one of those Forrest Gump types, popping up everywhere, and so it was no surprise to see him mentioned in Bryce Donovan's P&C 'It Beat's Working' column recently about the event. I'll quote the section:
As for mine, a man named Jeff Kopish paid $250 for it. Then he set it on fire outside in the parking lot. But let's not lose sight of the important issue here: It still sold for more than Chard's ($225), Rucker's ($225), "Lowcountry Live" co-host Ryan Nelson's ($65, which was bought by her boyfriend, by the way) and Hall's ($60).
I know for a fact (well, because Jeff told me) that he didn't set Bryce's painting on fire in the parking lot - nope, instead, it is part of Jeff's eclectic collection of art that he's been snatching up for many years now. Here it is, see for yourself...proving once again that art is in the eye of the beholder! (Or the toilet bowl. I'm sure we all have a few goldfish stories to contribute.)
As for my own furry affair, my dogs and the cat are enjoying that I'm home today - and not only that I'm home, but that I'm not doing too much. They're not doing much either - sleeping, standing, sleeping again - and sometimes I catch them in positions that are too sweet for words. Here's (Dog) Wood, looking as if she wants to get up, but she's unwilling to disturb the still-sleeping Ancient Wonder Beagle. Such sweetness.
