Today, it’s my turn. If you don’t mind, let’s play a game of “pretend”!
First, you either know or don’t know the history of Johannes Vermeer. If you don’t, let’s pretend you do! If you do, wonderful!
Since we’re talking about Vermeer, let’s talk about his painting, The Girl With A Pearl Earring. A captivating girl, and my favorite painting of all time. Obviously, because not long ago (well, it doesn’t seem so long), I painted a tribute to Vermeer’s painting.
Now, let’s pretend you love it to pieces! Pretend you’re captivated, you’re standing in an auction house and this (my version, heh) just came up on the auction block. The auctioneer is going over my palette, only 2 colors off from the Master’s, he’s saying how famous I am and how well known. (haha! We’re pretending! It’s okay!)
Now pretend you really have to have this painting. And pretend your checkbook doesn’t mind how much you wanted this painting, because your checkbook agrees! HAVE the painting, it screams! Go for it!
The most important part of this game, pretending my comment box is you raising your hand and placing your bid!
How fun is this! You can bid, but it’s not for real, but pretend it is! Which means in real life there are no kadjillion dollar amounts.
So, bidding starts at ONE DOLLAR (and is not for real so if everyone says one dollar, cripes, NO you can’t have it!)
