    WAVE, Working Against Violence for Everyone, a Petersburg, Alaska non-profit has an "art by the inch" fundraiser every two years -- at least this year they are having the third one.  The concept:  Each willing artist is given a 22 x 30 inch sheet of watercolor paper with the idea they will create a painting on it.  Then patrons who attend the gala event are selected at random to come forth, given cut out pieces of mat board and decide what portion of which painting they would like to purchase for $1.00 per square inch.  That part is delineated and marked as sold and the next wave of art patrons choses from what remains.  It is brutal for the artists, but fun for everyone else.  Last time I was aghast at what happened to my creation -- how it was (in my eyes) destroyed.  So this year I took Karen's cue and divided my sheet into four sections to create four separate paintings.  We'll see what survives.

    If you could see it up close you might notice all their bobbers are jiggling yet all the gnomes are asleep  Their fishing lines are all crossed.  I guess you can see the goofy deer but one baby gnome is fishing while the other is cooking a burning marshmallow.
