soupy sales

I painted this bowl (yes, a spinoff of one of my oil paintings from earlier this year) for Empty Bowls Schoharie County, an event happening tomorrow at SUNY Cobleskill to raise awareness of hunger issues in their community and raise funds for local food pantries. My sister runs a ceramics and art/craft studio in Cobleskill and is very involved in making this event happen, providing hundreds of bowls for people to paint, and then they're sold and filled with soup donated by local businesses. This one will be auctioned off, so hopefully it will bring in some bucks. I was flattered the bowls I made last year did well, then I found out my mom bought them. But the money did go to the cause- still a win.
