This is the watercolor painting I donated to Time for Art, an annual event sponsored by the Young Professionals to raise volunteer hours for local agencies. Participants bid hours instead of dollars in a silent art auction. Some of the agencies are Girls Inc., Columbus Hospice, Ronald McDonald House, Open Door and Habitat for Humanity. My painting, Cat Brier, Hadden Woods, “sold” for 100 volunteer hours. Whoever made that bid has a year to work it off, at the agency of their choosing, and then can collect their art. This is an amazingly simple, yet brilliant idea.
