Jean Haines and Tom Jones?

"Flying Colours"
Original Watercolour
To be auctioned at the Mall Galleries on 30th June,2011
In Aid of the Lady Taverners

My favourite painting " Flying Colours" will be  part of a unique auction lot at a charity event  in aid of the Lady Taverners next week. Initially I had the idea to unite both societies for a fabulous evening to raise funds for  very special children. My idea was to  hold the event during the SWA Society for Women Artists  150th Annual Exhibition with a unique auction taking place and live portraits being carried out  for guests to enjoy.

The unusual auction will see art generously donated by SWA members linked to theme prizes as auction lots. One of my horse racing paintings will be linked with a real day at the races. I owe very special heartfelt thanks to two very wonderful sponsors as my auction lot will now exist of "Flying Colours" my original watercolour , a flight in a private plane to the races at Newmarket where a special day to remember will be laid on for the lucky winning bidders. Apart from  that an exclusive boutique has donated a gift voucher which will help towards a new outfit for the day.  Following all of this  two  tickets to see Tom Jones in concert at the venue after the races are included!

Angela Rippon will be sitting for a portrait during the night,champagne and canapes will be  available and tickets for all of this are just £20!

Full details can be seen on the SWA Society for Women Artists web site and if you need help purchasing tickets please contact me on jeanhaines@hotmail.com
