Notre Dame High School Signature Auction Event

"Notre Dame High School" ©2013 Susie Morrell 10" x 20" oil on gallery wrap canvas

In addition to my September daily challenge, I have been working on two auction paintings.  The first event is on Saturday November 2, 2013 at Notre Dame High School called "Puttin' on the Ritz".   If you are attending the auction, look for my painting of the high school that will be part of the silent auction.  If you are not attending the auction, but are interested in bidding on the painting, contact me at 267-980-2777.  You can view all items and bid using BidPal by clicking HERE.

The view for the painting was taken from under the arch of the entrance to the football field during a sunny weekend afternoon when I was in the area of the school and the sun was setting.  The glow of the light on the facade of the school accented by the fall colors in bloom were my inspiration.  Since our introduction to Notre Dame six years ago we have witnessed the growth not only in our children but in the school as a whole.  Notre Dame combines education for the mind, body and soul.  I am happy to donate this painting and it's proceeds as a small token of my appreciation for the school, it's educators and administrative staff who make the school a great place to be a teenager.

As promised, here are all 30!

I love this quote by Jack Penn ~ 
"One of the secrets of life is to make stepping stones out of stumbling blocks."  
I call my studio - Skipping Stones Studio, so this quote seems appropriate having reached my goal of 30 daily paintings in 30 days.

Thank you for viewing my work!
