FROM THE BACK ROOM AUCTION
TUESDAY, APRIL 21 10 AM – 9 PM EST
Robin Braun’s Blue Sky with Wave, Chincoteague, Virginia, originally priced at $6,000, will have a starting bid of $2,000. Braun’s paintings of the ocean portray both storms and tranquility. Braun states: “I hope that my paintings can convey some of the violence and stillness, beauty and spectacle, of both the storms and the calm. The painting is beautiful in person and a wonderfully calming piece to add to any collection.
The auction begins at 10 am on Tuesday, April 21, and will end at 9 pm. To bid on the work, see our Instagram stories on Tuesday and send us a direct message. If you don’t have Instagram but would like to bid, send us an email at email@example.com.

One of the strongest non-profit organizations in Richmond helping to feed people during the COVID 19 pandemic is the Feed More Fund. With multiple programs, they are able to feed seniors, children, those experiencing homelessness, and those who have been furloughed or have lost their jobs. We are especially interested in supporting the work that they do for children who are now out of school and don’t have access to school lunches. Here is more information from Feed More:
