Tea Rose For Oak Grove

Oak Grove Classical Academy is slowly coming into full view. It has been quite a journey, but we are all so excited to see the doors open Fall 2008. In order to raise funds for school equipment, furniture, and supplies, the board is putting on a silent auction this Friday night. With live jazz by one of our board members, and swanky hors d'oeuvres, this event is set to be a night of fun for a very good cause. For all you locals, please contact me for information to attend! I finished a painting this week to donate to the silent auction. "Tea Rose" is one of my favorite floral paintings I've done--I'm almost a little sad to let it go since I have a perfect place to hang it in my home. Nevertheless, I will put it up for auction this Friday, and pray it will sell for a good, hefty price! Here are some pictures of the initial and final stages of the painting:
