"Phoenix Rising" is a beautiful painting!  Congratulations to the winning bidder.

Thank you so much, Leza and Carol!  :heart  It is heartwarming to know how the Hornby Eagles, and Phoenix in particular, touched your lives and inspired this stunning work of art.  Your generosity is appreciated.

I thought it was time for me to announce that I know who made the winning bid on the Phoenix Rising painting.  That lovely painting now hangs in my home!  I wanted to post a picture of it here, now that I have had it framed, so that you can get some idea of how the frame looks - I chose something as thin as I could find, as the heavier ones didn't look good.  And black really was the only choice of frame colour that looked right.

Yay, Madrona!  The picture looks gorgeous.  I know you will enjoy it in your home!
I am so happy for you!
 
Thanks once again to the artist, Leza and her dear friend Carol, who had the generosity to donate the proceeds of this work to the Hornby Eagle Group Projects Society.
