Following its exhibition in New York and full page coverage about its benefit auction in the festival newspaper perhaps it isn’t too much of a surprise that the Viva Lafrowda painting has sold in advance at the buy-now price. It’s certainly gratifying and will be a bit of boost for the festival’s finances. So, what to do in stead of the auction this year? How to enter into the spirit of the festival on Lafrowda Day (July 16th) and to contribute further to future festivals? After giving it some thought I decided to do unmounted but card backed, signed and wrapped prints of most of the Lafrowda paintings from the last 8 years and to donate the proceeds from the sale of these on the day, both online and at the Turn of the Tide Studio. You can see the range of what will be available here.
